    Default Helmet Help/Advice

    Hi, I'm posting these for my fiance's father. He was doing a renovation on an old house here in Virginia about 20 years ago and found these in an attic. They have been sitting on a shelf since then, but recently he got interested in them and asked me to find out anything I could. I know nothing of helmets or what to even look for, and as you can probably tell from the photos, I didn't do such a great job there either. I was hoping you all might be generous enough to answer a few questions.

    Do they look real? Is there something I can check or post a better picture of that would help? I don't have the helmets with me, but I can get better pictures next time we visit.

    If they might be real, what kind of helmets are they? I've read a few threads on here about the different types, and there seems to be a lot of variety.

    If they're real, and based on their condition, are they worth anything? I'm not sure if he's interested in selling, but he just wants to know.

    There are two helmets, this is the first one:








    Here is the second one:







    Thanks in advance for all your help, I very much appreciate it!

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    They are good honest helmets. Value would be around $500 for the pair.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks for the quick replies!

    I'll have to print out all the info from the German Helmets page to show him.

    Again, I appreciate the help.

    it looks the inside leather isn t that old
    it may have been put in later on
    still the outsides look amazing and real authentic to me

    Hi michiel, welcome to the forum!

    The leather is fine and original. These have simply been well stored for many years.

    Cheers, Ade.
