Should I sell my m42 to get a better helmet?

Article about: Hi guys, I'm wondering what my m42 is worth. I'm a bit torn wether I should sell my first helmet for a better one. Here's some pics...

    To my eyes, the paint looks like normal aged paint. They can turn to a darker greyish brown in color given enough time and the various storage conditions. I actually like the ring of rust on this one from having another helmet stacked on top of it for years.

    It sure does have a personality. Wow, I never knew it was green originally. We're m42's often issued green?

    German helmets can be found in many varieties of colors, depending on the time period of issue, the branch of service, etc.

    Its a good 'slate Grey' colour for a 1943 onwards helmet.

    Hang onto your first if you can - it will always be special.

    This is my late war ND M42 - this is the dark "slate"grey I was referring to.
    I believe yours too is the original colour.
