Nice to see that the helmet is still in the family. You do whatever you want with it but I would advise you to let it stay with you as a family heirloom. Did your grandfather take home some more collectibles from the war?
Good looking helmet.. I would keep it if I were you.
Just my opinion.
I specialize in M1 carbines and Lugers.
Yes i think it will stay in the family,showed it to a collector and found alot about it,yes he brought back other things also,a pistol,badges and such.
Let's see them all! Post them in their correct sections, though! This is a great helmet to have handed down to you!
Other family members. Have most of the other things ,was all split up to other family members,I just have. The helmet and his overseas Airbone cap. his cap is what I like the most,fits me too.
I agree with the others, keep it in the family. Resist the temptation to 'cash in', as you probably have PMs flooding your in-box already i'd imagine.
As it is a family heirloom, as long as it stays in the family it is priceless.
If you let it go, I believe somewhere along the way, you will regret it.....or your kids or grand kids will.
I would say,... keep the helmet. You grandfather probabley had a very hard time to get it! It's a family history piece! Don't sell it or give it away! That's just my advice.
