    If retail value is $700-$800 I did really good.
    With a decal in that condition retail value would be that everyday. Looks like you did good.

    Thank you for your kind comments.

    I thought Collectors Guild was really high.
    So I guess SVM is a good price gauge for me to use in the future.

    I am in Montgomery County, right outside of Philadelphia.
    Yes Collectors Guild is as high as it gets.
    They are not reliable when paying you either. Been there and done that.

    That is a very nice helmet friend. Glad you found it.

    Wanna go to garage sales with me? I remember standing around in 90-100 heat in MN July - August at Farm auctions with my Grandpa as a kid to bid on a crazy little buckle or bayonet and still passing on it. Rarely if ever to bid on a cool helmet that like. Nice find. If you were not Irish prior to that find you are now bro! Do a jig! The lid angels were watching over you

    Perfect been there helmet. All intact with chinstrap, initials, great liner it seems and a fantastic eagle. This is how I like my lids. I would put it in the $600 to $700 range as the only minor drawback is the slight rust on the shell.

    Not rust, . . . patina.
    Anyway, even at $600 I did good.
    Ya I know I was lucky.
    I have never even found a decent US helmet at a yard sale.
    I never get that lucky at yard sales.
    Usually I have more luck at flea markets.
