thanks for telling me as that saved me money as i might get it cheap?do you know anything abought australia ww1 helmets?well i guess i better go to that part of the forum..thanks steve
Is that 'Austria', in Europe, or 'Australia' the Island in the
South Pacific ? ? I believe you had several spellings....
'Austrian' helmets are similar to, but not as popular
as the German WWI lids. (M16 and M18)
'Austrailian' helmets are the same style
as British pattern lids of WWI.
STEVE THIS ONE IS GERMAN WW1 BROWN PAINT ,NO LINER WELL THERE IS PEICES OF ONE BUT ITS BAD..BUT THE HELMET LOOKS GREAT DID NOT KNOW WHAT THE GOING PRICE WAS FOR ONE?SORRY I CANT SPELL ..

Prices can be all over the place.
I recall you saying $250 - $350 asking price ?
Without a liner is usually how you see them, but if it has been
painted post WWI, ie: to halt rust, this affects the value
greatly too !
Better examples with original paint are out there for a bit more.
If it were me, I'd save my money unless he's willing to part
with it for a lot less..............
Or if I couldn't live without it !
thanks steve,i will see if he will take $150 it just has that nice look to it plus i dont have one..
Hi Pammy.Thought you might like to see this, I was just looking at German posters on the internet and saw this one. The bit in the background looks just like your great find!
I also just found this Luftwaffe communication badge lurking on eBay, I have no idea if its the real deal though.The photo is a bit blurry and has obviously had the swastika removed as per ebay rules.
Thanks Jim, Thanks thats great!!love to have that poster to go with the one i have!! and i would say yes on the pin it looks real like mine!THANK YOU AGAIN for the very nice pictures..how much is the pin going for?
