    Default WW1 helmet

    I found a ww1 helmet at a local surplus store. It was half painted black and on top of a pot. no liner chinstrap or anything. I barely recognized it. He was asking 35? Contemplating buying it...

    Could be a Good buy?

    Thanks,
    Michael

    And how would I refurbish it?

    Where would I get paints and a liner?

    I would save my money and buy one that is in good original shape.
    As much as I dont care for ebay you can find good originals for $100.00 or less, probably would be about the same or less than you would spend trying to redo a shell.

    In order for us to give you any real worthwhile advice, pictures are necessary.

    Are we talking about a WWI German helmet? British/ American helmet...?

    If you're itching to start a project, ask to take pictures of it/ ask if the price of the shell is negotiable.

    Otherwise, heed Steve's advice and just save for something better!

    well I think I will ask to get some pics of it beecause I really am looking for a project, so I think I will do that.

    Thanks for the advice,

    $10 is a more realistic price for a shell such as this, IMO.........
