    Default Value on de-nazified M/40 luftwaffe?

    Can anyone help me? I bought this helmet some years ago on eBay. It was quite a lucky buy, since there was 2 pictures, all taken from great distance and blured. Therefore, I bet not many liked to bid on it back then.

    Thank you very much!

    Frankly, I like the denazified pieces, they scream the emotion of the vets that brought them back. Great helmet - a "one looker"! As to value, I wouldn't have a problem paying $550 - $600. I have 7 M40 SD Lufts, they are fairly common, but display really well. If you are selling it you should contact Farradin on this site. I think he is looking for a nice real TR combat helmet in this price range. Cheers, Jim G.

    I paid $500 for the example below a couple of years ago and suggest your helmet is worth roughly the same at todays prices.
    I personally think helmets are very overpriced, even the common lids like this one seem to be creeping up to (IMO) unacceptable levels for what are, in effect, very common items.

    That's a nice price for that lid. Assuming the liner is there. I bet you would have no trouble finding it a new home. Does seem the prices have gone through the roof. Chinstrap alone is 15 or so.

    Thank you, the liner is still there, the chinstrap is a replacement, the two halves don't match but it is a decent helmet bought for a sensible price. This was when the $/ exchange rate was almost 2/1 so I paid about 260. I would like a SD M42 to go with it but I refuse to pay the current prices. As you say, chinstraps are extremely overpriced. That small strip of leather makes up a quarter or fifth of the helmet value in some cases. WHY??????
    I could buy two Eisenes Kreuz for chinstrap money - and frequently do!
