    Default 250 pcs german steel helmets was found in Estonia

    The place where they was foud in a lot of time was a secret of the guys who found them, now I've just discovered that place, it's a near the Tallinn, and after the war tha tplace was a garbage place for the military items from the ex-German stocks, unfortunately the Soviets destroy them before putting into the refuse pit. The helmets are partly damaged by fire, and the most of leather part is removed for recycling but I've got a couple of them.

    Look at the pictures.

    Unfortunately the most part of them is 1943 year produced, and they are without decals

    Veery nice finds. The stuff that I found in Denmark was also in some kind of garbage place for german militaria. It was burned too by the English soldiers after the war. Same with the german airplanes which were there. They did it so the danish ppl couldnt just use them (probably of economic reasons). These plains were dumped in a big sea close to the marsh where I found my helmets and stuff. Could be fun to once go down in that sea and see what's left! Anyway, once again - good finds. My stuff was a bit more rubbish - cracked helmets and even more rusty.

    Thanks for showing!
