    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I read it was a pasteboard copy the prop department made. The 'gilt' chinstrap was gold painted cardboard too.
    However, consensus is that Schultz' M40 DD helmet was the real McCoy!!

    I haven't seen Hogan's Heroes in many years, but if memory serves (and I am getting older so I can't be sure) Schultz' lid was an M42. I could be wrong, Jim G.

    Ned should know Jim ...LOL

    If a M42 the tricolor is fake but to me it looks a rolled edge rather than flared.

    Congrats Dan - well done, though it has disillusioned me somewhat...I always assumed the haube was genuine because of the time that the series was made - never really looked at it properly <hangs head in shame>.

    Ah, the helmet quota has been filled James. We moved earlier this year to the country and what disposable income I had was quickly absorbed ( those that have moved know what I mean )
    That and having to pack up a collection makes you wonder at this obsession we share.
    So I am looking for other less bulky trinkets to covet ......

    Thanks for the kind words chaps ........
    Cheers, Dan
