Hi Chris, Looks good for relic condition and would be a cool addition to any collection. However I agree with you that its way too high priced and $450 would be on the high end of a fair price.
Wow, I'd have a hard time paying even $450 for that relic. I guess I'm way out of touch on the market for these. Hope all is well in the Windy City Chris.
Unfortunatley even relic FSJ helmets are now being offered for big money !!

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
