Please ask questions if needed and please do to correct me if you find mistakes in my listing. On the inside of the helmet on one side is stamped ET62. Then on the inside back of the helmet is stamped either 2418 or 2118 can’t quite make it out. I do believe though that it is 2418. Please see pictures and judge for yourself. Color is a bluish black if I had to guess and appears to be original paint. Leather is plyiable and appears to be in very good condition and none of the seams are coming undone.
