    Was there a helmet in the pile? The injuries might be worth it

    Nope, not this time. Just a damn dented cooking pot.

    Hello, all!

    I'm working the Saturday shift before leaving for a weekend away with the missus. A customer saw my sign and asked if I could tell him more about a "snow helmet" he had on the shelf at home. A few hours later he came back and showed me this:

    It's just your standard Office of Civil Defense helmet. Worth MAYBE $20 on a good day. I told him what it is, and that it was used by air-raid wardens, airplane spotters, etc. during WWII and saw use into the Cold War. He was thankful for the information, and I was glad to help.

    My first post on this forum, and I've just read the whole thread.
    Thank you for showing all these photo's and story's of your findings! Good job to save the items from destruction.
    I worked in a Antiqueshop and a year ago I was cleaning a house with my boss, then at the garbage place was a guy with a military hat and he threw it in the garbage can.
    Quickly I grab the hat out of the garbage can and it was a french military cap from World War 1.
    Sometimes you can have some luck, but you have a lot of luck!

    A customer also offered me "Nazi binoculars and a nazi token" in return for his dump charge... Idk if the stuff is authentic and if I should accept the deal.

    Don't know about the "Nazi binoculars"(Looks like a WWI piece?), but the "Nazi token" is a fantasy object from the 1970-80s, note that it says "Adolph Hitler" instead of "Adolf Hitler"

    Also: Can we see pictures of the Kevlar helmet?
    Best Regards
