Reproduction Siebe Gorman 12 bolt helmet, origin unknown

The German seller who listed this helmet on ebay declared that the helmet was in the posession of his family since 40 years which indicates that this must be a very early reproduction. It seems not possible to dive this helmet because the bolts are to short to allow the tick rubber collar of the suit to be inbetween the breastplate and the brails. A closer inspection would probably reveal more reasons not to use this helmet in the water.
