    Thumbs down New to the forum and want to show off my first acquisition

    Hi there everyone. I've been checking out the forum for a while now and finally joined cause I finally found something to buy locally . After a little research it seems I have 2 helmets from ww2 era and a flight helmet of some sort I can't identify at all lol I'm thinking the leather one is a repro or something cause there's almost no markings and the condition seems too good, let me know what you guys think. I'm in canada so I imagine these pieces are canadian.

    Thanks Chris! I'm really more into the German stuff but the prices hold me back, all I have is a nazi coin my girlfriends german grandmother gave me.

    Cool items! . When i first started collecting the items I first purchased were not in the best shape and not the most desirable, but they got me to where I am today owning things I NEVER thought I would be able to. Keep studying and learning the hobby, and keep your eyes and ears open for good deals and they'll come your way

    Nice lids to begin a collection with. The leather flight helmet
    is WWII RCAF - typical with the zippered earphone cups.
    They were probably used into the 1950's.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Hi Gongo and welcome to the forum, it took me many years and a divorce before i could start to collect what i wanted, our passion takes time and money, but the advice the guys give you here is priceless and worth every penny when you sign up to WRF, good luck mate.
    Regards

    I'd love a liner for the m1 but I'm happy so far with a $100 investment. I can't get any real info on the leather one

    Was $100 a fair price?
