    Not sure if thats a Jango Fett helmet? I think its dentless too. Maybe one of the more experienced eyes will chime in.

    You should post images with each side (and inside) of the helmet, this way is easier to identify a helmet by its particular characteristics.

    You are right! Looking at the left and the back of the helmet, you can see clearly that this is a Jango helmet, but I don't know who's work is.

    I've just noticed that there is a pronounced dimple in the helmet where the Borden conector should go
