    Hi everyone,

    I was browsing on ebat this morning and saw this helmet.

    http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&...id=161632549933

    This seller is known to pass put together items and fantasy pieces as original, and he is attempting to do so again. It is a very poor attempt at an MP helmet, but I wanted to post this so members with less experience arent screwed out of their money.

    Thanks for the pics MZ. I think this might be the worst fake Iraqi helmet I have seen. I like the nice touch with the patches in the background. Thanks for pointing it out Connor.

    I just find it baffling that anyone would think this has a remote chance of being legit... Please share this on other forums!

    Yet, there are people out there who believe a helmet with a roached out inside and pristine outside is an original from the war.

    A pristine painted helmet should be the first red flag, i agree with you there.
