    Just a quick question, what type decal would have been attached to the metal of the helmet to cause the holes. I have never seen anything like it before. I'm not questioning the helmet just puzzled by the holes. Thanks, John
    i never saw it, but it was a small flaming grenade. a bit like the french badge or british fusiliers type

    This helmet has seen post war use by the Austrian Federal Gendarmerie (Rural Police). The badge is a brass flaming grenade. This and the post war grey paint have been removed and a fake chinstrap added.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Original chinstraps do turn up from time to time on via dealers sites. But I recall they are not cheap. Expect to pay at least 100. Crazy I know..

    Sorry I don't really know a value for this helmet.

    Cheers, Ade.

    This is not an original German issue strap. Might well be post war Norwegian.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sad innit .... I wanted to ask if the stuff that is sold on the site is worth looking into I noticed you have a for sale corner with some nice items. I think I want to steer clear of some thing one ebay from now on.

    this is an investment for my baby girl so it means a lot to me.
