Guys iv ordered a copper coloured repro of the imperial german curraisers helmet. I personally believe its ok to buy a repro if the price of the original is thousands. My gut feeling is this type of helmet is at least 2 to 3 thousand UK pounds. I simply wouldn't pay that. The design is stunning ,and even in repro form can look magnificent in a collection. The money i have paid is i believe a givaway price. Also why buy a very rare expensive helmet when this is the very area the fakers are working hardest at decieving collectors? I was wondering do any of the pickelhaube collectors have any repros in their collection for this very reason?
