    It has all the right bits it seems, but that price is more in the line for a WW2 M1. I've heard prices are a little higher in Australia, but that still seems high.

    Yep, we pay a little higher for everything here it would seem. Especially in the West

    I with you though in this case. it is excessively high for a Nam helmet. I was considering making a reasonable offer to him.

    I asked for additional photos of the pot and liner without the cover and he said there are a few dents that i am not concerned about because id like it to have actually been there, but how would the pot get so scratched up if it had (presumably) the cover on it for most of the time? I see alot of Nam helmets that are pretty well unmarked because I assume the cover protected it a bit.

    That one seems right, but I've been watching this one. I think the seller has a few more. If you want one that's been there for a good price......................

    Nice lids from overseas if you can stomach the shipping and customs charges which usually end up more than what the actual lid cost....the seller is reliable and consistently has a lot of lids to shift,that one Andy has shown is good value for money....Jake.
