    These things are pretty common now at Militaria fairs in the UK and some of them are quite good , i'm not tempted myself as i think the prices are way over the top , 600 dollars is crazy unless the lid itself is in reasonably good condition which if it was then it shouldn't be messed with in the first place.

    Quite a few of the lids posted actually look in decent condition !!
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    As it happens i do a little painting myself... here's some pictures of helmets i did for fellow collectors, some were on relics, some on repro pots.
    And tho it does take alot of hours, i don't need to make a living out of it so my prices are well below the $600 range

    Although I don't personnally see a problem with relics utilized in this way, they would have to be of a special topic for me to spend the money on one.
    Nice to see you here Tom!

    The images on these relic items are a nice tribute, but they are probably best left as relics.
