Your correct, sir. I just read the description and recall it was instead the M-34 double decal medium duty SS-VT. What a mistake, however, it was a honest mistake as it's been awhile seen the 34 was on his site.
What a waste of bandwidth this was. I apologize for that, too. Oy vey.

This the researched helmet of Karl Hans Frank. He was the right hand of Reinhard Heydrich. So less then 8k is very optimistic I think.
I believe this helmet is in DougB's collection atm. Maybe you should ask him.
The Frank helmet is Kelly's helmet, he posted it here a couple months ago. And I can guarantee it was not 8k! Maybe more like 25k!
Anyway, the helmet in question looks to be a good SS ET, it's an ET66. Does it have a dome stamp, what is the liner band date (it will be on the inside stamping on the left side when holding the helmet with the interior facing you and the skirt to the bottom) and lot number (stamped on the inside of the skirt )? Better / bigger decal pics would help, but I like what I see thus far.
This one(last post) looks like a large size too. Damn, Kelly is a lucky dude..
Indeed, I didn't look at the full image, nor did I read the description. Please don't give me too hard of a time, as I had a laps in memory. She's a beauty, though.
Glad to hear the helmet may be good, it certainly matches well with Kelly's example. My only fear was the shine of the decal looked possibly a bit different, but it could be due to the image or my lack of experience in helmets.
This would be another amazing score for you Ryan, of course if it's real.
Thanks so much for your input and help guys. There is no way I am going to buy this lid, I am just merely helping him on the authenticity and price on this helmet. Some guy tried to scam him and put out a price of 1.5k which was obserd. I told him it was not right and I offered him ny help and resources . Trust me if I had the money I would buy it in a heartbeat.
