I just bought this for $65! The kid I bought it from had apparently been helping his uncle tear down an old house and found this as the house was coming down. He had it listed as a "WW2 German helmet", but thanks to this forum, I knew better! I used a little bit of "Bartender's Friend" (a powder cleaner we have here in the states) to take the rust off. I am totally over the moon about this! Christmas came early for me!
