    Sorry in advance. I know a ton about m1 helmets...just getting interested in German helmets. I have another thread going on a m40 that I might buy.

    The guy who has the m40..also has a Luftschutz. I like it, but not as much as the m40. He is asking $200 for the civil defense helmet. Is that the going rate for these?

    Here are some photos. Thanks in advance for your help...again!!

    If you have an interest in these, you might want to take a look at a book titled, Defending the Reich by David Littlejohn. Wonderful and like you, I am learning about these. It is available from Bender publishing :

    There are 4 versions of the "Gladiator" helmets, a one piece, a two piece, which is the one you show, a three piece and a flat rimmed, in actual fact the 2 piece is made as a single planchette of steel with a bead around the middle which gives it the appearance of being in two pieces, when really its just one, i personally think it should be called a one piece beaded, but the terminology describing these helmets have been used for decades
