    Default Three helmets i was offered - please help

    Hi,
    I was offered these 3 helmets. Two are not in the best shape and the one is what I believe is a firefighter helmet.
    Can you tell me whether all three are authentic?
    Also what is an approx value of all 3.
    The guy is asking $800 which I think seems high but would like an estimation of true value so I can counter offer.
    Thank you in advance.
    Here is Helmet A

    The M40 and M42 gonna be difficult to sell afterworths IMO. Doesn't the seller want to sell them apart?

    No because he is trying to unload his collection.
    If you can tell me what each helmet is worth maybe I can negotiate a deal.

    Hi, personally I would save my money and leave these. Even the best one (the fire fighters) has at least one missing rivet. I think these are all pretty poor examples and as Krisse says, you will have real problems getting your money back with them. I would not worry about their value as it is pretty low imo. Leon.

    Not worth $800. Unless these were $100 a piece I wouldn't be interested.

    Ok helmetone so $300 would be your max for all three?

    How much is the firemans lid worth by itself?

    Maybe I will just try to get that one.

    Really I wouldn't buy any of them to keep. For $100 a piece you could maybe flip each for a little profit to put towards a much better helmet.

    $300 is reasonable if you just want these for yourself, but would not consider them as an investment for retirement.
