    My friend offer this helmet shell (no liner) to me for $225.00, it look pretty good to me, it does appear to be a German M-16/17 shell but I am not sure about the painted swastika? What do you guys think?

    I'd say a repainted bikers helmet. I think $225 is too much and depends on what you want to do with it. I'd say $50-100 bucks. Do you have a pic of the interior?

    FWIW - I think your friend could offer you a much better deal on this one.

    $100 tops and get him to buy you few beers :-)
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    I agree with helmetone, it looks as though it had 'R F' painted on it at one time (Rat Fink) and was used by a Biker.

    Lol - Only guys of our generation would know what 'RF' stands for, Anton.
    'Rat Fink' was the first thing I thought of when I saw that !

    $100 is the top end of what I'd pay for something like this.........
    Regards,

    I still have a Rat Fink shirt. I wear it when I'm attending
    bike and car shows.

    I like the helmet and would leave it as is because of the
    Biker / RF connection.

    Thanks, I think I will offer him 100 bucks(the shell appears sound) and if not just let it go.

    I suprisingly knew RF too since my first addiction was cars, as a kid I would recive all the old popular car magazines from my dads friends and study them more than my school books. Unfortunatley I only collected matchbox cars and made models instead of the real things
