As the only Luftwaffe eagle which is more common is the wool eagle, and with the staining, I think the value is below Steve's low...

I agree. Neither field made or an issue cover. And it certainly has not been on a helmet for very long; and only recently if so.

It's a fake.

Perry, I remember that helmet. That was a unique camo, and one of the nicest I had seen. Many wanted it, including me, but tough to justify when we all thought that one was overpriced. It sold at...

That is $21,450. They (double decal FJ) used to bring more. Many collect helmets like that, so if they have the money how is it they don't have the sense if they decide they want it for their...

A couple of photos of a helmet I just found a couple of months ago. Note the right rear bolt has been turned, but long ago. Looking closely I can see the chinstraps had been adjusted during the war,...

The decision is up to you. I only pointed out areas to pay attention to. From the photos there is no sign that it has been taken apart, or cleaned, etc. Handling such a helmet is always necessary. It...

Didn't pay much attention to the collar tabs. But note how the one on the right has been cutdown and narrowed to match the collar, which is not as wide as the other one.

All very odd. I agree it...

Sd.Kfz. 231 8-Rad & Sd.Kfz. 7/1

Saw these a few months ago at that great military technology museum in Koblenz. Can't recall seeing either vehicle before in person.

As mentioned in the helmet section, it is unusual to see an aluminum band on a late helmet. Certainly possible though, but would like to see the inner nuts.

Certainly all original.
