    Default Luftwaffe M42

    I just wanted to post my m42 luft lid. This was the first german helmet I ever bought. I picked it up at a local militaria show in 1984. Paid a whole $80.00 for it, which was alot for a high school student only making minimum wage of $3.35 at the time. I miss those kind of prices. The liner is a size 58. Thanks for looking, Rob.Click image for larger version.

    Great honest lid Rob! If only they were still that sort of price these days! I'd have one each week! Cheers, Sean.

    Great pick up Rob, and for the $80 that you paid for it back then, compered to what it is worth now,
    you can call it a good investment.

    A good honest helmet , although as you say "a bit pricey" for 1984!! Worth a bit more now though!!! Leon.

    Thanks everyone for your comments. Never had any regrets buying this one, but, at the time I nearly passed it up. Rob
