    I'd go with fake for some reasons the people who reproduce they see it as a good idea to knock off one of the D bales to make it look as is it where worn, could you show the rest of the helmet for confirmation

    Treat any of these for sale with extreme caution. There are more fakes than you could shake a stick at. Better photos are needed of the helmet, but without prominence, forget it, save your money.
    What's the asking price by the way?

    They have had a good stab at it, but to me this one is fake.
    There is no dimple on the rim which all m2,s had, and I have never seen one make holes in the helmet shell when broken off they always leave the feet when they break. Most fakes never seem to have chinstraps, to me thats because its hard to get good quality repos.
    Save your money, and wise choice posting it here first.
    What was the asking price?
