    Take $400 off the police helmet and $350 off the Luftschutz helmet to get there real value.

    I definitely knew that they were grossly over-priced, he had some other items that I was interested in that are priced within reality but I don't feel safe buying the smaller ticket items if his highest priced items are replicas.

    Hi , they both appear to be period pieces with good original decals , but they are way to expensive as the guys have said. The police helmet is nice but needs several $$ reduction and the Luftschutz has been de-Nazified so that now holds a much lower value. Leon.

    if these helmet have been sitting there for a while. because of the price. somtimes if you offer cash at the price you are willing to pay, this might work. or if you wait a few more months and go back, and there still there put a offer in. some store holders like to keep items moveing. this has worked for me. but it may not work.

    price locally.

    on any overseas dealer sites that I happen to look at.
