    Canadian Scottish MkIII on Ebay Empty Painted Helmets

    Post by edstorey on Tue Feb 12, 2013 3:31 am

    Much like the painted M1 helmet craze which seems to never end and has resulted in an endless stream of nearly indistinguishable fakes, I would not be spending my money on any painted Commonwealth helmet without doing some serious research and soul-searching.

    This one has been for sale on ebay earlier, 1 to 2 years ago. I'm pretty sure it's a fake due to the absence of quality in the badge and it is VERY inconsistent with known originals. I wouldn't touch this one with a 6 feet pole.

    I thought it looked familiar...wasn't quite sure though.

    Canadian Scottish MkIII on Ebay Empty Mk III Helmet

    $2,388.00US is a lot of money to pay for a Canadian Scottish decal stuck to a Mk III Helmet with no provenance.

    I am very uncomfortable with that helmet. Someone put a lot of $$$ out for something without any provenance.

    In my opinion the decal is not contemporary to the helmet.

    Yes I agree, it looks way too big for a helmet decal

    I believe the decal to be original. It is similar to known original examples that I have seen. Ypres makes a valid point, when was the decal added to the helmet? The age and wear on the helmet is not seen in the decal.
