    I agree, these are good helmets, and they all seem to be well used but in good condition. If the Swiss were anything more than observers in WWII they would be very collectable, and you get a lot of helmet for your money, I drastically reduced my collection about 5 years ago, but still kept one these.

    Quite a nice example, and a good price too Ian.
    They might not be the prettiest of helmets, but are far from the ugliest
    Not to mention a good quality helmet.

    My feelings on this Swiss helmet are pretty neutral....

    Swiss helmets are far from neutral Ned! Did you not know that they are used by genuine, real life superheroes?!?

    Very nice example, I have one of these in my collection with the post 43' anti-glare finish,they are fantastic quality helmets,but I would say they are an usual shape!!!

    These were exported to Argentina too, and would feature an Argentinian roundel on the side.
