    That is pretty neat!!! And I love the helmet. Had one (but a little different) as a kid (70's).
    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    If you look at the one photo I think it might be either Nagasaki or Hiroshima.

    You could be right about the pictures. The devastation seems to be massive.

    BTW...I found the helmet I had as a kid as well as the "utility" belt (although the image is small). Memory lane for me. I loved that helmet.

    Also found yours with the original box....LoL

    The battleship is likely the USS Missouri. The photos by themselves are a fascinating looking bunch that would be fun just to try to ID and label! Well found!

    The helmet with the box is quite collectable today.
    That is when you realize you are getting older. The stuff you played with as a kid is considered antique and or collectable.
