simply amazing...........what more can I say?
That's a nice helmet. Wouldn't mind having that helmet in my collection
A real gem

Bruce nice Helmet could you tell us who made it. Also was it black at one time and then repainted ? Gary
This nice grey cap is also on said website, and not seen usually at swap meets, hock shops, or also in Baltic locales. The black cap was also sold recently in 24 hours.
This posting is not intended as a commercial endorsement, and the poster has no personal interest in said item other than I should buy it, and have instead to buy a car.
But these are remarkable and rare caps. They are not my property.
Also, if a reader wants then to post some offensive a libelous allegations here about personalities (including mine), then kindly think twice before doing so, as the administrators here enforce the rules with some dispatch, as recently shown in another case. There are other sites where the murder of reputations of dealers and collectors rules the realm, so you can go post there.
Please keep your posts here civil and express your opinion like a gentleman or gentlewoman, and keep this site functional and not like the dung heap as had elsewhere. Also, deploy evidence of a credible and tangible kind to support your assertions.
The Frank helment is a remarkable piece, to be sure, and the piece has been vetted by some leading authorities in the US. You can surely disregard their opinions as you wish and proclaim same to the world. We are all free to believe or disbelieve anything and everything. The tendency today is the latter, of course, which might make for amusing reading on blogs, websites, and "twitters," but it does not correspond with reality.
