    There'a an almost identical one on the Collectors Guild for just under a grand U.S., here's the link.

    It's a beauty with subdued fittings and with a complete liner! Go for it!

    Thanks for the input. Starting bid is $425. How high is too high ? It's in pretty good shape! Forgive me but I'm not too familiar with wwi helmets.

    A nice ersatz fetches a good price. To me, $1500 bucks but It may push $2K if its a worldwide auction....? Only a gut vibe, see what others say. It would be really great for under $1K! Good luck.

    Thanks Nigel. It is very nice as far as condition goes. One damage area..looks like a crack in the felt.. On the front by the emblem

    Wow! That is terrific, congrats! You will easily get that and more if and when you sell.
