Need better photos, but at this time I say not. Thought at first it may stand a chance, then I saw the interior shot and that's what pushed me away. I also think the decal may be suspect, but I'm not good at decals, so let's see what others say.... Barry

I think that it has a chance with better photos.
If I had to base a purchase off of these photos however, I would let it go.

Hi,

Not good, it's a fake one, the paint in the interior is the major red flag....

By itself the paint inside is not a dealbreaker but I have to say that the more I look at this one the less I like it.

From the pictures the decal looks bad which does not bode well for the rest of it.

Have patience and check the E-Stand here. Also, post pictures here for opinions. Collecting camo helmets can sometimes be a minefield.
