    Hi, this is my first time on the forum, and my first time getting into collecting helmets. I'd like to ask what you fellow members think of this example, history/action, whether it is a good collectors item, etc. Any help at all is appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Hi, welcome to the forum.
    You have not posted photos of the helmet itself.
    Please do so, in order that forum members may give their best opinion.
    Thanks.
    Cheers.

    These pictures are the best there are from the website. Fifth picture from the top, part of the bare helmet is visible.

    It means these are the only photos the seller has provided.
    Correct?
    It maybe or not a good one, theres no way to prove it, may very well be a clone underneath.

    Correct. This seller was recommended to me by another dealer which is fully believed to be genuine and honest. I don't think he would sell a clone, but then again I am the rookie, and you are the experienced one here.

    Not an expert on M1's, but I'm suspicious because:
    1) The important details, such as Liner stamp, what the helmet looks like under the cover, and seam type are ommited.
    2) The phrase written on the cover is a bit of a cliche.
