It's one of those helmets that you wake up in the middle of the night trying to determine if it's real.

Not one i'm comfortable with at all.
It's interesting the varying opinions this one has received.
Owen has an impressive collection of SS camo but I can't help but think if anyone else had posted this helmet it would have been slayed.

The helmet would need an in hand evaluation, It looks nothing like the helmet posted immediately above.

You cannot write it off with out an in hand inspection.

The few initial images tell us nothing, re good or bad....

Maybe post it over at GHW for an expert opinion, the more posts there, the more expert the opinion, I think is the rule of thumb.

For example there is a KM helmet collector (non camo) who is an expert camo evaluator as he has ten years experience looking at helmets on line, plus a Hungarian guy who has no collection but is an expert all the same.

Hey inigo,
Close - that is sarcasm.

A lot of camo’s just can’t be judged via pics.
