    Thanks Phill, Andy, Corey, Steve and everyone else. I suppose we have ALL seen the price of relic lids rising lately, so ones in this condition are becoming harder to locate. I find i amazing that people are selling ( and buying ) such corroded specimens as would have been discarded from a dig not too many years ago.

    Bugger got in late here. Nice pickup Dan for a good price as well. Will be looking forward to the updated pics.

    Your right, helmets that would have been thrown away years ago are selling more frequently. Decent relics are getting harder and pricier to get

    The helmet I bought from Boriss in Estonia arrived today - here are some close-up shots of the decal remnants and the 3 colours - apple green and then the two coats of feldgrau. ( this lid saw some use )

    The eagle appears to be on the 2nd coat but the tricolour is on the first original one, but actually I think whoever painted the second coat painted AROUND the eagle - what do you all think?

    My camera macro is not as good as I'd like ...... or maybe it's just me?

    Nice lid! 2 years ago a relic lid in this condition could be had for around $100 or a little over, you are right when you say that even relic prices are rising.

    Gadzooks - you are right! above and to the left is scratched H KOPPEL and then above the lot number there are additional scratches more unclear ... maybe his unit? Thanks for the eagle eye!
