Hi, we are liquidating some collectibles and this helmet is among the items we have.

 

I cannot find an actual helmet with this design & the petronas logo on upper visor. (most are gauloises, so maybe this is from right after tobacco was removed?).  Otherwise it looks like a Prost Jean Alesi replica.   I have seen rather wide variation in auction pricing on similar (but not identical) items.

 

Any info/insight on this item (or approximate value) would be appreciated.  It will  be for  sale once due diligence  done.  If this is the wrong sub-forum, I apologize and request that it be moved.

Jean was personally sponsored by PlayStation/Sony France in his Sauber days. So that could explain the Petronas visor, but then not the other decals. One could say it is indeed a Prost version from Jeans helmet but with a wrong visor since Prost was sponsored by Total and they were the official supplier of Prost.
The only thing I can imagine is this helmet being a 2000 winter testing version. Tho I cant seem to find any full frontal pictures of said helmet. Also the shape of the helmet makes me think it is a 1998-ish style helmet. Not sure if Jean has actually worn this certain shape of helmet and livery scheme.
