I have held the helmet close by ever since acquiring it. I have never offered it up for sale at any price or attempted to sell it. I have had a few inquires for trade that I didn't pursue. Since creating this post I have enjoyed displaying this find and have sent a lot of photos to veteran members in the german helmet community all verifying it's authenticity.
This Austrian wonder is still here with me!
Hey how is it going!? I am glad you kept that one, its such a unique and rare piece, I think the find of the decade in German helmets myself. Sorry to spread false rumours that it was for sale, that is what I heard and if for sale it should be at a very high price or high trade value, it is not something one can just look up on a dealer site and find. A most amazing helmet, and if anyone doubted its authenticity I believe I could prove it beyond any reasonable doubt, but there is no need to.
You got one hell of a find there my friend!
Aaahhh, this. Warms my heart this story.
I moved the relic helmet to its own thread. sometimes it helps if you let the mods know about this as sometimes these things don't get noticed.
Whatever its just an opinion.
What, you mean you don't read every word in every thread every minute of every day?
