I think if the dealer will return money over 4 years, that is a good deal then, you can allways ask here or in other forums for opinions, before purchasing something.
You can try to find something in our sponsors sites
At least one of them has a good choise of helmets

Henrik Rask runs raskantik.com
He has a lot of neat stuff _ mainly firearms and equipment but lots of other stuff too including lids. Some prices are high but not all and lots of goodies that are ot run of the mill items.
I have never had a problem.
This is a very good scam , undetected fakes are pure profit and the detected ones you refund , try to loan 4000 euros from a bank. They don't do it at 0% intrest.
Multiply this with other fake items in their inventory and we are talking 50.000K worth of items easily.
That shady money they can invest in real top pieces while your money is stuck in a piece of crap.
Regimentals UK, are they any good?
I would advise to stay away from Regimentals. You could maybe try out RBNr Militaria, it is an Italian site. They have some nice helmets, but I'm not sure about their other pieces. Here is the link: RBNr Militaria | SHOP
Definitely steer clear of "ww2 relics & collectibles" now going by the name of "Combat Helmets". Owner is a member here. I prefer relics that have "been there". Bought a "WW2 Relic Fallschirmjager Helmet" on his website last month. Pics weren't too good, but I had bought two other helmets from him in the past and made the mistake of trusting. Helmet arrives 3 weeks later (Him in Preston, Lanc, UK and me in Texas) and though the overall shape is similar it is DEFINITELY not an Fallschirmjager. When I contacted him about it he said to "throw it in the bin" and he would pay me back someday when he sold more helmets off his site. Not very reassuring, so I offered a scheduled payback plan based upon what he could afford, so he sent me a link to his returns policy which states no refunds after two weeks from shipment (not arrival). Evidently he thinks his T&Cs are still binding even when he commits fraud. Turned it over to PayPal Disputes, but my $ is gone. Learn from my stupid.
Unfortunately I discovered too late he got kicked off of the WAF for his actions: Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums
Let us hope that Wayne sorts his life and business obligations out and returns to the forum as he was a valued member in the past.

I have never dealt with Wayne but we have spoken a bit and he seems a nice bloke, not sure what is going on. I hope he sorts everything out and honours his obligations.
