    Default Grave marker heer

    I run an add on CL offering to buy military items.
    A guy wants to sell me this Grave marker Helmet for $300.
    It has NO LINER.
    I really do not know what these helmets go for.
    I could not find any on dealer sites.
    Can you please let me know whether $300 is a fair value?
    Thank you in advance.
    Sorry for the poor photos.

    How is it being identified as a grave marker helmet? By the hole in the top? It could just as easily have been from a table lamp.

    True. But how else do you really identify a helmet as a former grave marker?

    Exactly the point...you don't, and because of this it should not command a premium price. As it sits, it is simply a damaged Shell of limited value.

    40 years ago, I remember one helmet(German) in the civil cemetery in Munster(Alsace), it was rusted by rain and snow...

    I dont know, maybe it was not a grave marker but why would it have the hole in the top.
    Also, if a GI took it off of the grave a short period of time after the soldier was buried, it may be in this condition.

    Okay why would a helmet from a grave have a hole on the top???? I've never seen a picture of a soldiers grave,that has a pierced helmet on the top(it just makes no sense unless it's a bullet hole)

    Well check out this thread:

    grave marker helmets

    I would assume to hold it to the top of the post.


    I know it should not necessarily command a premium price but in the condition it is in, I want to know if $300 is reasonable.

    Do you have pictures of the hole.
    Grave marker helmets did have a hole put on the top some did have more than one.
    I have one that came from la cambre Normandy.German cemetery
