    This is the third luftschutz lid I've found in the trash. First was a candy apple red painted biker-converted helmet, second was the lid I traded for a few yards of mulch and now this!

    ManOMan you are finding some great stuff. It is a shame it is found in the trash, but awesome for you. That is a win win win there both a US army med blanket and duffel bag with a Luft shultz helmet. So is the helmet complete?
    Way to save history Joe!!

    Thank, Phil!

    Helmet is complete but the liner is ersatz with 3 leather pads and a plastic chinstrap. Split pins are tight. Decal is in pretty good shape with some crazing and surface rust on the exterior of the helmet.

    I still have the "mulch helmet" Joe and still enjoy taking it off the shelf and imagining its history.

    This one's liner has a WW1 look to it.

    Cheers, Dan
