    Not for me, too much rusted, and I think that vet came to their country with items in good condition.

    If it is a vet bring back then why is it rusty? This is probably a modern excavated one that is trying to sell with a poor story behind it! If you like the helmet take it but if you're looking a vet-bring back then search more!

    the second is not rare, the badges are missing ! I think you must wait to buy a good piece.

    The second one is obviously in better shape, but is not a combat helmet. If you don't care, that's the one to get. If your looking for a combat helmet, I would keep looking. You could still find a rough combat helmet for fairly cheap, that is still better looking than that one. I also think it is a dug relic helmet, and after the initial excitement wears off, you would be disappointed.

    The guys are right on the money here.
    Let both of these pass, the first would by no means be a Vet bring back IMO, and the
    second is not so rare, is missing decals, and as James point out, also missing it's comb.

    mmm Better ones out thare alright, but you could buy the second one, then upgrade in a month or so...and keep going like that..... the fun is in the search.....and before you know it, you will have a fine ww2 example.........(and these lids aint cheep)
    all the best with your search..darrenj40
