ID:	303543hello im hoping someone can help me out. i was recently helping my father in law clean out his basement when i came across these two beauties. He told me his father brought them back with him from the war. ive done a little research and i think one is a luftshutz helmet and the other a double decal m40 polizei. If someone could tell me a little more about these helmets and what they are worth i would appreciate it...thank you

    That's a very nice pair of helmets. One is an M38 Luftschutz, which appears to be a 3-piece from these photos. The other is a very nice, complete Polizei M42, not an M40.

    Are you planning on selling these? Are you a collector? Welcome to the forum.

    thanks for your comments ....no im not a collector. They belonged to my father in-law, he got them from his father. My father in-law had 2 daughters, neither of whom were interested in the helmets, so he gave them to me. Ill take some more pics of the m-42 decals and post them. i can assure you these helmets are authentic. He also gave me some swords, i was told they were a us calvary sword, a japanese dress sword an indian dress sword and the forth he wasnt sure of, if anyone is interested in seeing theses i could post some pics....also a weird rifle with an octagon barrel marked "wahl.stuttgard" on the barrel. let me know if i should post those pics aswell.

    I'm with you there..

    Prices here are outrageous and most of the stuff seems to be put together yesterday...

    It's a shame.
