    Default A Few New Helmets Added to the Kids Collection

    Amongst several other pieces of militaria the kid found under the Christmas Tree this year was a few new helmets to add to his collection. These, along with a few others that have started stacking in the closet again, prompted us to throw up a couple more shelves in my office. Thought Id share a few photos of his growing helmet collection. As always, nothing special but he likes them and Ill have to admit that Ive grown quite fond of collecting old M-1s as well, especially the USN lids. He is starting to make noise about wanting a German helmet in the shelf, hed better start saving his pennies!

    One of the real nice items (at least I think so) I picked up for him for Christmas was a very clean M1928 Haversack w/Meat Can Pouch. Our quest now is to get all the gear to make it complete for his display.

    Next on the agenda, put shelves up in his room for his growing gas mask collection!

    My wife collects rustinc antique trunks. The reason the shelves were put up is because she evicted my sons helmet collection from her trunks......

    Danny, we most certainly will. Right now he just has a half dozen or so on bare foam heads, stuck up on a shelf...half of them falling over, looks like crap. Need to come up with a little better idea than what he has going on before we start throwing up shelves, a good way to secure them etc. He's got about 20 GMs I guess, some are better left in the box but he "HAD" to have them. Would be nice to do the GM and Helmet pairing but as of this moment, he really can only do so with the US GM's he has as he really does not have any others that mate up.

    I've seen some great display ideas from many here on the forum but most are pretty high end and and not in the cards for his small room and MY wallet...LOL. He'll need to get a bigger place (and a better job) to afford some of those real nice displays......but all that will come in time I'm sure.

    James, the helmet is a standard M-1 although I do have an M-1 shell sitting around with a Para chin strap on it, I just don't have an M1C liner to mate up with it. And yes, the repelent bottle is dated Dec 1966. Assuming authentic but who really knows, grabbed it off of eBay!
