    Hello all! I've been collecting for a bit under a year now (although I've had some items longer). I mostly collect headgear and helmets from WWII and the Cold War. Just ask if you want any closeups.

    Thanks everyone! The log book is from the 50's. The owner was flying only run of the aircraft. It appears he was flying super cubs and cessna 170s mostly. Unfortunately not a commercial pilot, but still pretty neat for only 20$.

    Welcome mate, a nice start you have there. Do you find yourself leaning toward any particular focus? It seems steel helmets are a favourite (good lad )

    Thanks everyone! To col James, it's Definatly not a BGS (although the colour is close). It was dug up, the holes were filled with fibreglass and a polish liner thrown in and then painted this crappy green latex paint( it would be nice if it was an intact BGS though).
