    Thanks for your reply Nick. I will probably buy it today, but I think I can talk the seller down on price beforehand

    Do you think this is an early model? I heard that white stamps are rare on these tanker helmets. I believe it is a mid-war example.

    Regards, Nikita.

    I can now happily say that I have sealed the deal on this helmet. I managed to talk the seller down $25 USD, which may not be much but I suppose any amount lower is great. I will post pictures of it when it arrives. 2019 has been by far the best year for collecting helmets for me, and I finally have one of my dream items crossed off the list!

    Regards, Nikita.

    It just came in, but I am going to keep it outside in my garage for a few hours to air out the smell. Usually I donít mind the smell of old helmets and whatnot, but my family said that itís too much

    Cigarette smoke?

    Maybe. It is a very weird smell, perhaps it was stored in a wet place, because it smells almost like mold, although there is no mold anywhere on the helmet. Put it could very well be cigarette smoke from long ago...
