    Wow 2k for a relic! Now there's a talking point.

    My initial observation is the shell is in much better condition than the interior, although if it was in peat, it would preserve it. The shell is green on my monitor?

    no doubt it has something going for it, but the price would put me off. I'd rather wait and buy a real one for 4k

    Man, that is pretty ugly. I'm not sure that one would look very good on any shelf. The colour doesn't seem right either. I'm no expert on the corrosive properties of swamp water but rust is rust and on steel it's usually dark brown, if the helmet were copper I could understand. If this had been submerged for 70 odd years it would be pretty much unrecognisable as a helmet IMO and the liner would be all but gone. It's definitely not my cup of tea that's for sure and I wouldn't part with my pocket money for it

    I have been collecting and relic hunting for years and never seen a green looking helmet like this.2000$ is too much 500$ would be OK.I pick-up some helmets from rivers and swamps they never look like this.I have a bad felling about it.
