    I found this helmet on-line and wonder how much is it worth. The seller wants $550, but thought it way too much.

    It looks in a semi relic condition to me , there appears to be a lot of heavy deposits in places, the liner looks in a bad condition and the interior of the helmet looks to have been repainted, possibly with a rust preventative , the decals picture could be ok but a close up would be better, i too think its a little high on price, for that money i think there are better looking helmets on the market

    I agree with dave, its in to rough a condition for that kind of money. Decal is a hard one without a clear up close pic but its ok.

    The photos are pretty crummy, but anything with a more or less complete
    original decal is more expensive these days. I'd want much better shots
    than these. As Dave says above, it does look quite rusty.

    I saw one last fall at a show here, in worse shape: laquered, rotted liner
    and a barely there decal, asking $475. This one appears to be a
    small size, '62' possibly...........

    $550 is a fair price for this helmet in my opinion, but I try to only buy things that I can get good deals on. It wouldn't be too hard to find one in similar condition for $450-$500. If you try to buy it, you can try to talk the price down a bit as well. That may be what the seller is anticipating anyway.

    I agree, $550 is around the right mark for this assuming the decal is correct but if you can get it any cheaper then thats a bonus! good luck!

    Many thanks for the feedback. I thought it just a bit too rustic for the price. Part of the fun for me is getting a good deal. Makes things less stressful, if I can convince the wife that it is an investment.
