    Default Please help!! Luftwaffe helmet i am looking at possibly buying

    Hi,
    I have the opportunity to purchase this helmet for $450.00 USD.
    Any thoughts on authenticity?
    Also, what is the helmet worth?
    I realize you may want better photos, if so, what should I ask the seller for (as far as additional photos)?
    Here is the seller's description:
    M1940 Luftwaffe Single Decal German Helmet This is a nice solid M1940 Luftwaffe German helmet. This WWII Luftwaffe German helmet retains around 90% of the original over-paint. Missing 1 Split pin rivets In Rear others are original to the helmet. This German helmet has the correct zinc galvanized steel banded M1931 liner. The original Luftwaffe decal rates at 85-90% intact. This German helmet is Stampted Q64 and S1434. Liner has some missing leather, Chinstrap MIA
    Thank you in advance

    It looks like a good helmet. $450 seems like a fair price for this one.
    If you can get a nice clear close up of the decal, that would be great. But I see no problems with it.

    Looks fine, price is good, but to be safe ask for a close up shot of the decal

    Ditto to the above. Knock him down to four bills though.

    I like it. Hope you get it for a price you are comfortable with.

    I concur with a close up of the decal. Wouldn't hurt to see pics of the inside of the remaining pins. $450 is a little high, but not horrible. If you can live with $400 ok, ideally maybe 350-375. I'm also a cheap SOB

    Hi ,taking into account the condition of the liner and the missing pin, I think Todd is spot on with his valuation, but it is worth whatever the buyer is happy to pay at the end of the day. The decal looks to be a good one but a nice clear close up would not hurt. Leon.
