If anyone knows this one, which I am sure at this point someone will, please help out. I feel very very helpless...but the good news is, I think this is the second to last post! Thanks!

The following info. comes from another site (I think this is the same one):

GERMAN LEATHER AVIATOR HELMET WITH ATTACHED CHIN STRAP AND A THROAT MICROPHONE; FLEECE INTERIOR. SEWIN IN LABEL READS "FL. KIPFHAUBE GR; BAUMUSTER LKPW101; GERAT-NR 124-436A; WERK-NR. -/; ANF.2 LN 26618; SIEMENS; LIEFARER: LUFTFAHRT; GERATEWARK HAKENFALDE".

    Hock45, you are really straining my brain & memory! Think it is a German aviator's helmet. I hope you understand that your friend has a great collection that can bring them a lot of money. Wish I were younger so I would be bidding on these items. Let him sell it to a good collector, pocket the money & smile over their good fortune. Both sides would be winners.

    Hey blunderbuss...yes, she is very happy to learn that these items have value. It is my job to find a buyer in fact. I will be letting these go one by one. If anyone has a suggestion, I would like the to go to a good collector as well.

    I know we cannot do business on CW, and I am not advocating that. However, I do not want: 1) My friend to lose out because of lack of knowledge, and 2) Some awful person to rip her off. That is why I come here first, I trust many opinions here.

    Thanks again. Good night!!!

    My advice is to have numerous bidders so there is competition that will get a fair price.

    I agree with blunder. In my opinion a properly identified, well described and photographed item on an internet auction site will get her more money. The more local (off the net) you get, the less people with a special interest see these items, and there is less competition. Militaria and gun shows are great only if you already know how much to ask. Taking it to a dealer means he needs to devalue the item enough to make reselling it worth his effort, and selling it to a collector means asking him how much of his own hard earned money he is willing to part with.
