Bring your decal reference book and compare the feet!
Unfortunately i dont have any militaria books, but this helmet looks quite honest. Ill bring a few pictures of some heer decals as reference.
all the best,
What book are you refering to Doug ?
Any more opinions on this helmet?
All the best,
Can't tell you much either way without more pics....looks honest enough, price is good.... But we'd need more pics of decal, liner and chinstrap, plus the lid close up
Liner pin looks loose
As a Ex servicemen with PTSD, I see this quote in a different context
"Enjoy the war, as the peace will be unbearable"
Ken N's book would be a good place to start. You can I'd the decal from the feet.
Looks honest enough, but did you agree on $400 without seeing the rest of the helmet? What's the inside look like? Too many unanswered questions so far, unless you have seen more than is shown in one pic. Definitely worth going to have a look at.
I would rather spend these 400 on some quality second hand books. It will totally change the way you think and act when you the collect bits and pieces of our history.
The helmet will wait, and if not then you will find plenty of other examples later on. And when the day comes, you are armed with knowledge!
Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.
