    To me it looks like an original military police helmet but due to the lack of decals it could have been painted over. I am no expert so anyone correct me if im wrong.

    oh and as to worth the bottom one if is in fact original and has everything (which yours doesn't) would be worth around 560-670 so knock a bit off

    Field police helmets would be gray, not black. The black helmets were worn by fire police and firemen. Odd that they do not have any decals. Possibly issued to Hitler Youth helpers.

    The helmet at the bottom appears to be a civic curved dip form helmet. It is not a combat helmet but a helmet made of lighter metal and worn during crowd control etc by police, or worn by fire protection police (Feuerschutzpolizei) , railroad protection police (Bahnschutzpolizei) or air defence police (Luftschutzpolizei).. They are not so valuable but are still worth picking up as they can be acquired for much less than a typical combat helmet and they still look good on the shelf!

    Regards

    Not sure, maybe somebody else can help you with that one but I'm guessing it's similar to the helmet in the lower picture ie civil organisations. To be honest, I don't like the top one...I would consider buying the 2nd lid but not the top one. Wait for more replies anyway, hopefully somebody can identify the top one.

    So would they be worth getting for 25 each?
