Too good to be true?

Article about: This helmet has come up for sale near me. It seems too good to be true that it is a genuine helmet, so I expect it must be a replica / fake. What do you think?

    I dont collect these at all..but what I can see that is obvious is the liner looks almost new to where it is a replacement ...the condition of the liner inside is a far cry from the outer condtion of the helmet...I guess the Paratrooper didnt sweat at all.

    Wait for the Helmet Gents to comment further..Im sure there is more going on with it than what I have stated.

    If Larry can even see it's a fake.....well then it's one to certainly walk away from. LoL

    I will add that the "ET" maker mark is a dead giveaway as well as the other issues already mentioned.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated
