    Default Please help - m42 luftwaffe helmet - authentic?

    Hello,
    I have been offered this Luft for $700.
    I would like to know whether it is authentic and does it appear to be in original condition?
    Also, as for value, is $700 a fair price?
    Two concerns I have.
    First, it has a dome stamp. I was under the impression that dome stamps stopped by the time they made M42s?
    Also, I thought $700 was kind of high based on my review of other helmet websites.
    That being said, maybe there is something special about this one that I am missing.
    That is why I would like opinions.
    Thank you in advance.

    I asked for a few more photos of the outside of the helmet and a strait on pic of the decal.

    Liner appears to be Norwegian ReIssue, will gladly stand corrected...Doesn't appear to be original to the helmet...
    $700 is way too much in my opinion...Luftwaffe helmets are the easiest to find and generally found in the $350-$450 range...
    Looking forward to other opinions as well....

    Personally I would not pay more than $350 as I could probably get around $400 for it.

    I managed to score this partial decal from Germany for $150 a few weeks ago...all I had to do was clean it up...
    I recommend passing on this one...you can do better for the money.

    The decal is a little better on this one.

    the only positive thing this helmet has is the decal and the dome stamp , the liner looks like it was replaced.
    If you look around you can find many untouched unquestionable LW helmets with good decals around 800-850 USD.
