    Default german helmet found

    Hey guys i found this german helmet close to me, and before any further discussion with the seller i would like a few opinions. I really stick the U.S. militaria and really just to m1 helmets and uniforms. I want to try and branch out so i was thinking of getting this. The owner says its a single decal helmet that has no chinstrap. He also said that its a large size 66. He gave me a price of $375. I know that these helmets can either be $100 or as much as a few thousand so any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi, personally I think that the price is to high for this one. Much better images of the decal are needed to be sure that it is even a good one, but assuming that it is, the helmet has a lot of rusting and paint loss. Also the liner leather appears to have either shrunk or been replaced as it is not butted against the liner band. The draw string is also missing, so all in all, not a very good example for the money in my opinion. Leon.

    Looks like a real deal beat up SD m42 with the original liner, as for price well that would be towards the higher end of what i would want to pay for that one.

    Would actually sell for more in UK at the moment. I would say a fair price.

    Yeh I have to agree. I would want more pics but it's not outrageous price at all. We are a funny bunch, we WANT our TR items to be valuable but are quick to shout ''too expensive'' on others all too often!
