    Default 'Vet Bring back' M42 helmet

    Hello everyone, I saw this helmet and I almost fell in love with it! I might get it if it checks out with you guys, after all, you're all the experts! It is supposed to be a vet bring back but I have no Idea how to authenticate these types, I know the helmet itself is real, but for all I know the owner might have written on it himself. The seller suggests that it was just a shell when it was picked up and the liner and components were added post war. The asking price is $525, is that a good price? Any opinions would be very helpful! Thank you!

    I believe it's presence on that website is authentication enough!
    ( no, I don't get paid or have an affiliation with them .... )

    Good dealer. I just bought a helmet from there! Dave is a good guy and he is pretty fair with prices for a dealer!

    A very nice, original M42 and an honest dealer, too.

    In my opinion, most of Dave's decaled helmets are overpriced. However, $525 for this one is an exception. That is a fair price.

    A great helmet from a well respected dealer. Price is decent for the lid as well.

    That's not a bad price, but if you don't like te price throw him an offer. He will listen and consider. He is very good with communication, even though he sent the helmet I bought to the incorrect address after he confirmed he had sent it to a different address. That's the only problem I have ever had when dealing with him.

    Lol - too bad someone painted 'Germany 1945' on the front - It is what it is !
    I don't think you'll find a more complete Luft helmet with 95% of it's decal
    under $500 today. ( Add on another $150-$200 for an original strap. )
    Regards,

    Thank you all for the replies! Is the "germany 1945" original from WW2? Or in other words was this really a WW2 souvenir that a soldier brought home and wrote on?

    Dave is a well respected dealer (I've purchased 2 helmets from him) and the helmet is everything he says it is.
