    Jan 28, 2008, 11:25 AM - Help me please, What is this helmet worth #1

    Hi,

    i own this helmet since a few years and want to know what i could get for it if i plan to offer this helmet.

    The former owner said that he was a former employee of Don Post. This helmet has some modifications on the paint job, a Don Post deluxe plaque with Nr. 321, no padding inside, metall ears on both sides. The rangefinder is from metall too. He told me that he did some modifications on this helmet because of make him more accurate. He also said that this helmet was not from the official run with the official paintjob but a kind of prototype for DP's deluxe series. Dont know all the details because its a few years ago and may be i forgot some details Hope you will help me to find out more about this helmet and its price....who else could do that if not the guys from TDH

    Here are some pics (bad quality i know)

    nevermind.

    Well I think its exactly what your buddy who you got it from told you it was. It appears to be a DP deluxe, if im correct, it should be made of fiberglass. As he said, it was modified from the original helmets that were sold. As for its worth, I dont know

    Take some up close picks of the inside.

    Id do a search on (I hate to say it) E-Bay and see what they are going for. Im guessing 150-200 without the orginal paint. But I think that's a little much. But I already said that on RPF. I hope you get a good price for it.

    Like I said if you cant find a buyer LMK.lol

    Ok, thanks guys. I think i will not sell the helmet then. Its too nice to sell it with metall ears for something about 200 USD.

    Hi Collector,

    Oh might as well just send it to me...it's practically worthless! I'll pay for shipping and give you $60 for it! Just kidding! According to this CLICK HERE and scroll down past Vader's helmet, in it's original state, it might have been worth $600 - $800 dollars mint. Hope this helps!

    Thanks Gene. I've seen this before. But it seems that i won't get a price like that for that helmet, although its metall ears. But it is like it is and it will be part of my collection in the future too. Thanks for your help.

    No problem and you're welcome! It must be nice to have a piece of Star Wars history, and because of it's lineage, it has an intrinsic value.
