    Default 1945 D R helmet

    Hello gents; I've spotted a nice, unissued dispatch rider, made by BMB in 1945.
    A couple of question: are these markings on the liner original? And, which is in your opinion the current, average price for this type of helmet? I don't have any idea about it...
    Thanks in advance.

    And I've got a couple more of pics; the paint seems to me original (look at the brim), but greenish instead of brown toned, as should be the late war specimens.
    What do you think?

    Looks ok to me, 45 dated ones generally go for a little less than 42-44 dated ones. But anywhere from 65-95, sometimes as seen on ebay can go for well over 100.

    I agree with the above. I also have a 45 dated example in mint condition.

    Thank you very much Aaron and Doug! The seller asks more than top end, I'll try to work on it.
    Thanks again.
