Hard to tell from your photo, and I am just a novice with 1870 EKIIs, but to me it looks like a painted core, with the bad "8". Obviously a better photo can prove me wrong.

I am sure the pros will...

Congrats Steve, great helmet!

I knew the collector, who got it from the vet's family, for a very long time, and was able to handle this one before the show. Really nice example.
