    ok now i know our US M1 forum at the moment is starting to look like an ebay advertizing site,but after all its all about discussion correct,so for your consideration on ebay original(so the seller says)2nd division front seam fixed bale etc,with hood rubber(salty)chinstraps cut,blue vinyl headband(i think)with 3 days to go $3500 so far and this because of the matching insignia's on both lid+liner,would any of you pay that much or more most likely for this complete set,me i could buy an original normandy camo for that price,hymm lets hold that thought shall we,cheers dave.

    With the insignia, it's very difficult to tell, and without serious prominance, I personally would avoid it. It looks very, very good though. But so do some of the faked ones. The liner though is spot on, and is very sought after in its own right, (By me in particular ) and is worth a pretty penny, so I would bid to the price of a decent HR liner set, certainly not $3500 though!

    As nice as that one is there is no way i'd drop that much on one helmet.I'd put the money towards some nice old spec de-acs and a heap of field gear!

    You could buy an all correct WWII version of "the greatest single battle implement ever devised by man" for that price. Obviously I am referring to an M1 Garand.

    And some ammo. . .

    I like the 2nd ID lid, it looks spot on to me. I have a few, including these, which demonstrate the variety of the WWII insignia - painted insignia, paper decals (this helmet has a Hawley liner which, sadly, does not has a 2nd ID mark) and water transfer decals (these may be from shortly after the War, but the others are definitely WWII vintage). The one that started this thread is, in my humble opinion, correct, just priced a little too rich for my wallet at this time, or I would be bidding on it as well. Cheers, Jim G.

    For posterity, the eBay lid sold for $3500 or 2257

    Jim, simply awesome helmets. I've often wondered about the paper decals, thanks for posting them.

    Kind Regards,
