    Hey guys,
    I'm thinking about moving on this Luftwaffe Helmet. What are your thoughts on it? It has nice Decals, but the liner is pretty poor. Worth a shot or should I wait?

    Hi , if the price is right this is a good looking helmet. As you say , nice decals , and I have seen much worse condition liners. Leon.

    Looks to be a pretty decent helmet with good decals as well.

    If you like it and the price is right, it's an honest lid. I'd expect it to be around $600.

    The liner looks as if it might have suffered from blood rot.

    Honest looking lid and as the others have said at the right price well worth having!...

    Can you see a date on the liner band? It is interesting to me that the liner band is a reinforced aluminum band, but the chin strap bales have the rounded corners like those on steel banded liners used from 1940 on. I would be interested to see if the band is dated 1940? Regarding the helmet over all, I like it, it is a salty, but very representative double decal Luft, and the decals are very well preserved. Nice one at the right price. Jim G.

    Jim I think Werner Zahn made the reinforced alu band for a while after the rest went onto the steel, could account for the rounded bales.

    I just found this where it is for sale, somebody got a decent price for a DD at $450.
