Hmm... Kinda looks like one of the new helmets that have been created recently. But I'll leave it to the experts to identify it/claim it. In any case, someone took a shot at trimming it and decided it wasn't worth it or they weren't up to it!
It's a VERY nice bucket. Very few were ever made, and the few that are floating around out there are very hard to come by. Unlike the "mystery" helmets, the MSH has no direct lineage to the screen used buckets, it is an original sculpt... but it is still a very covetted piece of many collectors' collections. The reason why I posted this asking for a positive ID is because if it is an actual MSH, I'm obviously going to consider bidding on it.
If Natty says it's MSH, then it's definitely legit. He would know. Thanks guys for giving a positive ID on it. Now I just have to decide how much I can afford to bid, and hope DV1 doesn't outbid me.
OMG! I showed my newB!!! Thanks for the clarification. I'm still learning about all this stuff. The search really helps one come up to speed but as with most things, there really is no substitution for experience!
