    Hi Guys!

    One of the most desirable helmets . But i have my doubts about the liner which looks fake. Shell marked ET64 and Liner has size stamp. What do you think?

    I confirm , the liner is 100% fake. Keep the picture, because this is a typical liner used by fakers and it may help you to compare it with others : light brown leather darkened with oil and polish, sometimes coffee to make it look WW2 period.
    The decal is also fake. If you look carefully you'll be able to see a surplus was gratted on the top to make it even and also it was put on a cleaned area that is slightly bigger than the decal. In other words you have a shell sold with 2 extra zeros behind the price.
