    Very convincing..but fake paint job. Very scary. Someday this will be aging in a collection as an original

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    No offence guys, but this is starting to become a bit like the other forum with monosyllabic answers. Please if you have "yes it's good" or "no it's bad" answer explain to the original poster why your giving the answer, otherwise he/she doesn't really learn.

    Cheers,

    Fine , for me sometimes i just get a gut feeling about an object , yes iv been wrong before and will be in the future no doubt , this helmet has a few things i just dont feel right with , first the area around the liner pins doesnt apair to have much in the way or wear going by these pics , close up ones would help , the paint although looking very old doesnt appear to have any cracking at all , the area around vents , the brown paint seems a little to much and new looking , these are my thoughts based on these pics , clear close up photos are needed to get a better finding on this helmet i feel . cheers Raymond

    I would like to have it in hand to compare to original paint. I would also feel much better if he stamped them, paint is to easy to remove.
