    The first and last are fire police helmets. The second is a combat police helmet M42. The third is an M40 Luftwaffe helmet. Closer and clearer pics are needed of the decals to determine if they are authentic decals or reproductions. The Luftwaffe and combat police look like good decals. The fire helmets we need closer of. Welcome to the forum!

    Edit: looking closer I'd also like to see a better pic of the party shield (red with swastika) on the combat police helmet.

    They all look good to me apart from the obvious condition issues. The M42 Police is probably an EF shell based on the decals.

    The black M43 polizei helmets (the ones with the little holes) go for around 250$ collector to collector. They are very common so if you need a quick sale you could have to drop the price.
    The EF Polizei M42 looks nice but is not in top condition , I'd value that around a 950$.
    The Luftwaffe shell around 400$.
    Just my personal evaluation.

    Schwerpunkt is dead on with the prices. I recommend selling here on the forum's classifieds section, as EBay does not allow Nazi related items. Trust me, I've been suspended about 5 times this year.
