    I would say that insignias on liner and shell look fake to me

    Based upon real examples that I own and others that I have held, in my opinion the insignia are too big, especially on the liner. I would say the insignia are not period applied. Jim G.

    One the price is much too cheap, 2 the overall ware of the helmet does not match that of the rank insignia on the front, I would go with this one being a repro one must look very hard to find an authentic painted helmet now a days
