Each to thier own! But I have to ask the question why pay serious money for a repro aged helmet for a display? Perhaps its just me, but it doesnt compute in my head!

I guess its because an original in this condition is upwards of £6000, so wont be affordable to anyone, so the next best thing is an aged one at £500. This I guess is especially true if you have a mannequin type display, several museums also go for repros because they struggle to get originals!

If you go to Dead Mans Corner in Normandy - there are repros there, if you go to the Museum in Anzio there are repro ones there!! There are many more, some bought thinking they were genuine and some bought because they could not get genuine ones....

And in some museums some shit nicked the real ones , some of the items have been removed from puplic disply as things like sunlight and the air are making the deteriate

I guess people want an example in their hands or in their collection, why do people collect stuff
anyway, answer is because they like and want to own it, as for buying these helmets it is good
thing for some because they are the next best thing to owning a genuine example.

If I go to the Tate or the National, I expect to see the real deal, not some facsimile! Ergo, if I go to a military mueseum I expect to see the real deal, if only to compare to the repros I have. This is especially true if Im paying for it. To display items and not tell the punters that some of them are not real is disingenious at best,deception at worst. Ive a load of good quality repro gear in my own house, maybe Ill set up my own muesum and just say all the originals are in storage!

Anyway, its just my opinion!

The guy is offereing a service and a very good one of that. I cant afford £6000 so i would look for the next best thing and this is it. If you dont want it dont buy it or keep moaning simple as. See you in a museum sometime. :mrgreen:

Dont get me wrong! Ill probably(defo) be in the market for another FJ helmet(to add to the six other repros from ATF, Gmax,RZMilitaria ) I just dont get the whole buy a 500 quid helmet to make it look like its been in a bog for 60 years, but then again 'there is none as queer as folk'
