It's an idividual choice thing, some people may want a good repro and brand new and untouched, others may want it battle damaged, tripple cammo'd with chicken wire and falling to bits and of course the range between these 2 extremes!
If people could afford (and find) the genuine helmet they wanted then they would buy it. But because FJ and other helmets are so expensive it puts them outside their price range and in step helmet repro creators such as myself and Mike.
Why do you have 6 helmets - probably beacause you liked each one as you came across them but why settle for those ones when you can get a better one......LOL p.s. add £100 if you want the 'bog' look
