Heer & luftwaffe helmets - latest pick up
I posted these two helmets before I purchased them and the thread was closed because people got off topic.
At this point I am posting them again because I have my own photos which are better and show more of the helmets.
I just want to know if they are in fact authentic?
The consensus before was that they were but again, here are better photos.
Also I was able to negotiate both for $800.00 USD.
How did I do price wise.
Thank you again
First up is the LUFT helmet.

Looks like a good one to me friend.
The seller originally wanted $1,200 for both.
My intention was to buy both and try to get a little better price.
Then I would sell one to offset my expenses.
BUT, because I was able to get him down to $800.00 it is a price where I can afford to keep both.
Here is the HEER helmet (no pun intended).

Thank you Steve.
Any thoughts on this one?
The dilemma I have now is that I have four German helmets.
Which two should I keep?
I cant keep all four based (I need to sell at least one to recoup money and pay for the two I just bought).
Which two would you keep?
The first two I have posted?
Or any mix including the next two I will post.
The next two are both Luft helmets.
The problem with the one with the chin strap is that there are concerns regarding the liner pins being replacement.
The problem with the other one is that it has a rust spot on top and does not have the chin strap.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
I am asking essentially which are the best two helmets?
Here are the other two.
First up the one with possible replaced liner/pins.

Both are authentic helmets. I like that SE Luft.
Next up is the one with the rust on top and no chin strap.

Congrats! And sorry about the OT.
Thank you guys for a quick response.
Any thoughts on my other question - which ones to keep?
Oh and BTW, the way I look at it is that I like to buy things in a price range where I know that, if I ever sell the item, I can make around 10%.
Hey, if I can get the item cheaper, even better.
I do not have unlimited funds so I want to be able to buy and sell as necessary to maybe upgrade items in my collection.
That is all that I am going to say about that issue.
