Twenty bucks! Thats more than I paid!
It actually was a karma item.A friend,Jack,is an old biker,stops in the shop once in a while.A few years ago he got cancer,and was having trouble with his treatments,working,and paying his insurance so he could keep getting treated.He started showing up with stuff to sell,and between my friend Stan and I ,we bought it all.Most of it got thrown away after he left,or stashed away in hopes it would someday be worth something.But he finally showed up with the helmets,another friend bought them,but sold the pilot leather helmet,and gave this one to me!It is all original,I think.It has been in an attic since 1945.There was once a German uniform up there,but his mother threw it away after she cut off the buttons for something else!
The insignia is still there somewhere.
I find lots of neat stuff that shows up at the shop.Last year I got a Tec 9,brand new,hard case,soft case,4 extra mags,and 200 rounds of ammo,for 400 bucks.Also several tyhousand rounds of Portuguese 8MM in cans for .25 each.Gold is where you find it! ---bil
