    Default Your opinion on this helmet.

    One of my wife friend brought me,this helmet tonight and ask me if I would be interested in it.I ask her if I could keep it for a few days to look at it.She sayed her grandfather was in France in ww2 and he pick it up in May of 1945 in ST Nazaires.
    The decal looks good ,I look at it with a loop and has gold flakes in it.
    The liner date 1943 would be correct for a M42
    the Shell is a EF would be correct for a Kriegsmarine helmet

    Tell me what you are thinking.
    I am at 50% right now.

    Well she is a good friend of my wife.She does not have any reason to lie to me because she does not know anything about militaria.She told my wife she would like 200$ for it but we can talk more about the price if I thought it was too hight.She just want to get the helmet out of her house,she does not want it.

    amazing,,she knows nothing about militaria...yet asks for $200...why not $500 or $1000....it has been my experience for 49 years that people who know or claim to know nothing about militaria usually ask astronomical prices for such things,,,offer her $50...and see what she says....
