look how easy it was to resell / trade it? when you get something for a good price it's much easier to get your money back, it's not a big deal
This is my first time viewing this thread and all I can add is after reading some of the comments above, I was left totally breathless. Not in a--oh wow, that's amazing or shocking--way, but literally unable to breath. I don't know why, but it's obvious someone seriously despises punctuation, periods especially.
Personally I don't think yopu did that bad-the shell is probably worth what U paid but hey i guess I'm not in the elite ranks of collectors!!
Like I said on your other thread, you still got a good deal since reenactors have to pay 100-200 dollars for a a bare shell these days. Just don't fool yourself into thinking that this is going to bring you the happiness of a real, untouched helmet. lol
If I was you, I would sell it for a profit and save the money for a nice single decal M40.
I no longer have it this helmet like i said earler I traded it last night for a few nice bayonets and a ww1 us army garrison cap, so far I have $225 saved up now and still adding more so I can get a decent helmet that's original and not messed with
