    Best of luck Doug,its a tuff one either way,some of the minty shells are going for hundreds,and remember regardless of the condition the shipping wont change,so personally i would get a decent one and it will look great and last forever..............

Size:  13.9 KB Hello Doug, I have just spotted this on ebay for sale in Bristol so no huge postal costs but it's 250!! and I know you are looking for a shell only. See what you think anyway mate and get a few of the experts opinions on it if you do proceed. As they say you're not buying the story.

    Thanks very much for letting me know- but this is a higher price than I was hoping for. I will be interested to see if it sells, no bids so far.

    To be brutally honest a Normandy Helmet commanding that sort of starting price has got the worst pics I've ever seen,is he trying to sell it or just test how thick people are?I will be very surprised if it goes,looks ok but everyone is entitled to see clearly what it is they are commiting too,the second looks good,the rust matches between shell and liner,but is Doug fussed at whether its a fixed or swivel Bale?McCord or schlueter?lets all keep looking.............

    I agree. I have no preference about maker or bales.
