    Jan 16, 2010, 7:17 PM - Interesting DP 96 helmet...PIC HEAVY #1

    Here is a 96 DP that I got a long time ago at a party store.






    Here is where it gets interesting...
    There is molded-in texture completey covering the entire surfaceof the helmet. Here are a few
    pics to show what I mean. Sorry for the quality, but believe me, there is a LOT of texture and it is EVERYWHERE!
    I just wish my camera was better.






    My theory is that this is an early pull from a mold of a DP Deluxe. Kind of like a test shot, maybe.
    I have never seen or heard of another helmet like this from any year. What else could it be?

    Looks like a standard 96' to me, all 96' and up had green interiors. Do you have any shots straight on?

    It's not the color of the inside, it's the level of detail outside. I wish the pics were better because you'd be able to see the texture of the weathering. It has an insane amount of weathering molded into it.
    I'm telling you, I have never seen another like mine ANYWHERE, even on this board.
