    Default New member, help with Luftschutz Helmet?

    Hi everyone,

    My first post! My name is Ryan from the land down under. Very new to collecting and was about to buy my first helmet and thought I'd post it here for your feedback if that's cool. I understand from other comments on this site that these helmets are quite common and my initial thoughts are that this is genuine. Any comments gratefully appreciated.

    These are quite easy to get and the prices are reasonably low for them,so dont jump too soon
    The decal looks good though.

    Thanks Mick. He was aking $475 then knocked it down to $300. From other comments here even $300 is too high so may just wait a bit. Thanks again, Ryan.

    Welcome to the forum Ryan,

    Firstly, regarding the helmet, one can only concur with the comments above. From the images, the helmet appears to be a worn Luftschutz lid. She's seen better days, but she would still display well. Unfortunately, that price is too high in my opinion. I'd hold out for a better example, they are out there.

    Regards,

    Carl

    p.s. You deserve praise for using the forum, to post your potential purchase before you bought it/made an offer. So many new collectors fall into the trap of buying before receiving confirmation. Its good to see somebody do it the right way, well done!

    Mate you can get a pretty nice example for the money he is asking....is he an Aussie dealer?

    One thing you will learn quick is that stuff costs more if you buy it from a dealer in Australia!!!
