    Default Original Captain helmet. Looking for info and rough estimate on value?

    I bought this from a woman who's husband recently passed. He was a Captain in WW2 who rarely wore his helmet. The liner is perfect and the shell is very clean. It is original and has the fixed chin strap loops. The liner is fiberglass? and has all strapping etc,. The leather strap is present in the helmet as well. I'm a newbie so was wondering some details about it and relative value? Thanks,
