Interesting thread fellows. The Guild is a fairly good benchmark, but I have to agree that they are a bit pricey. But afterall it's what the market will bear and the buyer will pay. Value is very subjective based on the individual that wants the item. I do agree that the Estand is another fairly good place to look at values. Like one poster mentioned and I think it's a great point, virtually all German helmets are unique in some form or fashion. This dynamic makes value just a little tougher to figure out. I always wrestle with value from the point of purchase down to the helmets I sell on my website. There are times that I will list a helmet and think it may be a touch high and it sells in 5 minutes. Then there are helmets that I feel are priced really well that sit. Determining values is always somewhat challenging. I am finding the market is soft on the more common pieces, but the choice condition pieces are still commanding top dollar. Just some thoughts here on pricing.
