    I'm glad you like it! Most of that stuff was thrown out, but some was either donated or "traded" to me in return for me covering their dumping fees. We're in NY... everyone should come on out!

    Thanks Ben I figured it was a repo but I was hoping for a little more input as to how you know it is. Is there something that is a dead giveaway? Thanks

    There are several things wrong: Construction, material,
    the buttons, the badges themselves. For me it was
    the eagle that stood out.

    I still think it's a great find, even though it appears
    to be very large in size. 61 ?

    Thank you Steve...does a large size make it less collectible? I thought with German helmets the bigger the better?

    Lol. If you like it, that's all that counts - it really doesn't matter
    what size it is, though whoever originally bought it must
    have been a pretty big fellow...........
