    Are you asking if the Shell is fake or the paint?

    No way to tell with one photo on the shell.

    As far as the paint. No way to really tell either. Not sure if the brown is rust or paint.

    Looks like the vent hole is plugged which is something you see in original helmets (but to be honest, anyone at any time could roll up some cotton or paper and stick that in)
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Could be the flash, but it also has quite the shine. Maybe scrubbed and cleaned.

    Again. No way to give you an accurate answer with just this one photo.

    Ask for more photos - sides, front, and back.

    From this angle the vent lugs look too thick. The entire shell looks a bit odd.
