    Jepp, I got very real good Informations about this Helmet, and trust me. That are my pictures the Guy sended. And he didnīt payed 300$ for it. Or he bought it from a man in Italy. This Helmet was from my Dads Farm, where he was in 1944 and there were a group of 40 Soldiers with 240mm Howitzers in the Yard. The Group of 40 were at the roof and leaved many Stuff there. All Items we found there in the 70th when i was old enough, were from these group of soldiers. I donīt know, why you kids all think how to find out how it is original or not. YOU ARE ALL REENECTORS HAHAHAHAHAHA

    well that's me told

    You could be sure. You have now a very good,original Captain Helmet . At the Time,when I sold it at a website, the only thing was that i needed money at this time. You could really belive that i never ever will sell any stuff from the Farm roof,that belongs to my life and Familys life. I hope that it is now clear that the Helmet is 100% WW2 . Greetings

    Hmmmmm, 1944, war ended in 1945, so a group of soldiers , still fighting a war, left their equipment and in one particular case a "Captain" decides to leave his vital head protection, up in a roof and then continues the war without one, that makes a great deal of sense, i wonder just how many wartime soldiers, still in the thick of fighting leave their helmets and carry on regardless, in fact how many troops in Afghanistan, Iraq and other conflicts before this just leave their helmets and walk away to another battle, especially a gun battery, am i being too critical here, or just sarcastic, answers on a postcard please

    Very funny story 155mmhowitzer... Even a 10 year old child can make up a better story...
    The leather chin strap looks not good for me. It's too "new" for a helmet which lay over 30 years in a barn? And 300 bucks for a helmet without web chin straps?(only if the story were proved)
    Greetings

    Hi Guys, first off, the new member here is NOT a previously banned member. So no insults or paranoia needed thanks.

    The helmet is clearly original. But as can be seen the liner and leather chinstrap have been partially cleaned.

    I have no idea on values.

    The story, who knows, but kit did/does get left behind.

    Cheers, Ade.
