    Default my birthday treat!!!!!

    Well I know that fixed baled Helmets rarely show up these days here in the UK,and when occasionally they do, just forget it, its always way out of my league,so anyway when this came up as a B.I.N or "best offer" I just had that impulse to go ahead and just do it,I know to a lot of you your be thinking yeh so what just a box standard ww2 helmet and yes you would be right,but to someone like me who has family commitments etc normally just cannot afford any thing like this,and yes its cost a bit,but a lot less than most dealer sites I regularly check out,it just had that look about it that I always like the most, not mint but not rotted out either,just that nice been there and done a bit I guess the price reflected that,I dont have it to hand just yet but here's the sellers pics that bowled me over.......enjoy anyway.......Front seamed McCord fixed Bale dated around mid 43 with Brass raised buckle,Westinghouse liner with green painted steel "A" washers, green buckle chinstrap (a little dry) and the sweatband is a green croc clipped mid-war type.........please enjoy.....Jake.

    nice pick up Jake

    very nice salty M-1 just the way i like them, i hear ya about these types of lids coming up in the UK not very often these days & when they do people throw silly money at them which is not good when you just dont have the money to splash out on them

    Thanks Nick thought this would be your cup of tea,for some strange reason many wont look further afield like US ebay weather its the shipping or customs I just dont know,but Im pretty certain this would have been way to high even for me if it had been on over here,I felt it was worth the risk..........Jake.
    With Regards Jake.

    when i first started out on ebay i use to check US ebay a lot because you could get very good deals back then on helmets & the shipping was pretty cheap but since shipping cost have gone up they're not so good anymore i still check there from time to time but shipping + import fees do tend to put me off

    Thanks James and Leon its frustrating at the best of times when you get into something at such a late stage that your so passionate about and yet have left it way to late with the lack of variaty and the sheer volume of cost,I know nothing really special will probably never come my way so just have to grateful with what I do have,as I have a few NAM era lids then this for me has to be my new centre piece,who knows maybe one day I might be in the right place at the right time...........Jake.
    With Regards Jake.
