    I must disagree, respectfully, of course! This helmet is FAR beyond just a "tin helmet" for reasons Doug has already pointed out. Not a helmet to be taken lightly.
    You're right, it's just a steel helmet.

    How do you find this in an antique shop when I have found almost nothing in them? I thought no helmet could exite Doug as he just been so desensitised to them through seeing and owning so many, but I have been proven wrong. Absolutely fantastic find!

    I'll give you a nickel for it
    Is it a 1913 liberty head nickel? If so I might consider it

    But I am still floored and this has made my day for sure. Screw work, I keep coming back to this thread.

    In any case, hurry up and post better photos or I will be flying to your place to see it in person LOL. (No I don't want to buy it, I own one already but I LOVE seeing these mega-rare out of the blue finds!!!!!)

    A great day to be a helmet collector!
    I admire your enthusiasm and passion for the hobby Doug.

    I'm not as lucky as you, so you'll have to settle for one we took back with us from the family trip to San Francisco in 1999. It's an heirloom

    Just wondering, for the icing on the cake, what did you have to pay for it?

    Are you in the State's? I'm just wondering what corner of the world this was found in.

    Edit: Sorry, just saw above that you said North Carolina. Yeah, Dave is going to have a crap fit that he didn't find this one.

    All I have with me is a camera phone and flashlight, its very faint in the picture. I'll get a better one soon.
    By the way this came from an estate sale 2 days ago in central North Carolina, then I scored it.
    That is Dave Shirlin country, he is going to freak when he finds out what he missed LOL. Great provenance as well on the estate sale, a good sign for this one.
