    Default Extremely Salty Luftwaffe M42

    Hi guys,

    I placed a half-hearted $150 bid on this a few weeks ago and thought nothing more of it. I wasn't really expecting to win it. I got a notification earlier that I had won the helmet. I don't think I did too bad!

    As you can see, the thing is beat to hell. At least it's complete! I am very surprised that it still has its chinstrap. I don't know guys... would you call this one a relic?

    Cheers,
    Mo

    I would say its a semi relic MO, its not rusted to the point of holey plus there is a CS and relic liner and a faded decal

    I personally only consider helmets relics if they are removed from the ground, others base it on condition.

    What seller was it?

    That decal just reminds me of an airbrushed type decal on a relic that was shown here recently.....just my humble opinion

    These days it would cost you close to that for a chinstrap anyway so i think you have done ok as long as the strap is a good one.I can see the strap has been cut down and it does look in much better condition than the remains of the liner,do you think that it has been added to the helmet at a later date?

    I just scored a similar one ( shell only ) but a bit more salt on mine!

    I agree with the semi-relic description on this one too Mo.
    As already stated, the chinstrap is almost worth what you paid for it, which isn't a bad investment in
    my opinion.
