Need help! Cheap SS helmet full of holes genuine?

Article about: There's nothing wrong with relic helmets, 5 of my 6 lids are ground dug. To have this collection as non relic would have set me back easily \\$15000 I reckon so for the collector on a budget,

    Normandy isn't a good comparison , the shops over there are some of the most exepensive there is due to the large War Tourist trade !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Well, most of americans will visit Europe and Normandy only once in a lifetime. So it is not important that You can get similar stuff for cheaper price from eBay. When You are on vacation you will often buy items that You really do not need at all. And anyway - why should anyone buy a rusty helmet at all? After WWII all Europe was full of WWII stuff and nobody cared. Why should we pay for the very same stuff now tousands of $? Is not that crazy? Answer is simple - there are in 2012 much more collectors worldwide and much less original items! In Normandy all German stuff is of course overpriced (and a little secret to You - many of these helmets are actually from Eastern Europe). It is just business.

    Very true Frundsberg many helmets for sale in Normandy and other Battlefield Tourist areas such as the Ardennes or puporting on flea bay etc are recycled from Eastern Europe, !!
