Here is part of the seller's descrition and photos. I have not seen enough real ones to tell, but the scratches do not seem natural to me. Is it authentic ??

ORIGINAL 2ND RANGER BATTALION HELMET, NOT A RECENT PAINTED AND AGED COPY

THIS HELMET COMES FROM A LONG TIME COLLECTOR WHO PURCHASED AT AN AUCTION IN CLARKSBURG WEST VIRGINIA IN 1982

HELMET HAS,
FIXED BALES
STAINLESS STEEL RIM
SEAM IN FRONT
WESTINGHOUSE LINER
