Default Connaught Rangers Helmet

Hello fellow collectors,

I picked up this helmet and I am trying to determine if genuine or not. I am new to collecting rangers items.

Any advice or comments appreciated.

The black binding on the edge is not old and the roses on the side are copies.

As your photos are blurred and done with flash its impossible to see further details but it has all the hallmarks of either a modern fake helmet or a modern bandsmans helmet with a fake/original badge on it..
