    Default What type of helmet is it?

    Gents,
    I bought this shell of a farmer a few years ago, he used to play with it as a child and later used it as flower pot.
    I'd like to sell it, to clear some funds for a 57er Deutsche Kreuz in Gold. I have no knowledge of German helmets and am currently struggling to find out if it's a M35, M40 or M42. I don't see the difference...

    I would like to put the type in the discription on the auction site, can anyone help me please?

    Thanks!

    Something I discovered awhile back. It breaks it down to the fundamentals.

    Yup. Not worth a whole lot though I'm afraid.

    The price of a relic I think. It still is a solid helmet apart from the small hole.

    Maybe a bit more than a relic, but you are on the right track.
