German Red Cross Helmet

Article about: I agree the liner looks wrong for this type of Helmet, but if the decal is fair dinkum, I'd pay 200 bucks for it.

    The cardboard shims could have been put there recently to stop the liner
    from rattling inside the helmet, by firming it up.

    Split pins/rivets are what hold the liner to the helmet - I guess most refer
    to them as rivets. There are 4 on this type. They dont seem to protrude
    from the surface of the helmet to my eye, so hopefully have not been
    'messed with' which is a good thing.

    It is an interesting helmet for $200, and I like it, but there are others
    with more knowledge on this type within the Forum.

    I found a link that has a number of interesting helmets on it and it looks like the liner and the chinstrap match up to a couple examples called out on a couple of period helmets in the collection.

    I am taking a chance and buying the helmet; let me know what else I should look for when I get it.

    I think you will be ok at $200. A couple other members, including myself would
    also pay this price for it.

    The decal is the deciding factor really, even if it had no liner. Myself, I cannot
    give you an answer as to it being good or not, as I don't have knowledge
    in this type. I do know that double decal Police helmets range
    from about $300 to $500 these days.
