I picked this up not long after Band of Brothers from a prop store

Cost £75 (I think) which I thought it was well worth

Bona fide
movie memorabilia is very collectable. I say "bona fide" because in the wake of such movies as "SPR"..."BoB"..."Pacific" and "Fury", there was a plethora of alleged original "as used" props on the market...some genuine, some not! I recall there being 101st Airborne marked helmets in abundance...usually re-painted Belgian made M1s. Fortunately for me, a good friend of mine (KL) was the principal supplier of uniforms and kit for "BoB". As such I have a complete jump-suit and HBTs direct from the set, with 100% provenance. Even today, "as used in SPR..." etc., items still get listed on eBay and other dealers' sites. As always, caveat emptor!

Here's a movie-prop Airborne chaplain's helmet....with "battle damage" ( God moves in mysterious ways!) It's a US made M1 shell with a Belgian liner and added "A" straps. Looks ok up on the shelf!

Pat...the old adage, "A fool and his money are soon parted" still rings true!

Only a fool would pay that kind of money, but I guess there are enough of them out there.
As to the tanker helmet that's been in eBay for so long, first $15,000 and now $7,500, was it Patton's personal helmet, does it have gold lining on the inside?  :o
