    Default MY ONE & ONLY X WHITEWASH FJ 68...(for Leon)

    Indirect vet acquired para. Was whitewash removed. This was said to have been picked as a trophy by the Vet on D+3.
    I am only the second collector owner of this. So not much handling wear
    Thanks for looking & hope you like it Leon

    On behalf of Leon, I think he would approve

    No faults with this beaut of an FJ.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    dang...and I thought it just sold so quickly....


    just kidding..,never saw it and don't know your "site"... but would have dreamed of hitting the buy it now button . That said I probably would have lost out to Leon...after some " liquid courage" of course

    Once again David you have excelled! What a great looking helmet, that shows true battle use, we can only imagine what stories a lid like this could tell. A fantastic example and I am happy for you that a change of heart occurred keeping it in your superb collection. Thanks for showing it to us. Leon.

    Thank you sir. Glad you like it.
    Story from the Vet...the Krauts jumped them at night D+3...he took this as his war trophy. Kept it until 1981 & sold it to a collector at his yard sale. Was finally re-sold to me about 3 years ago.
    I know, I know...don't buy the story, buy the helmet. But pretty cool thinking it may be true anyway

    If the helmet is original I go with the story anyway...LoL...Doesn't hurt, Doesn't add value but makes it so much more interesting!

    Great helmet and a rare bird in that clean condition, thanks for sharing.
    Cheers Chris
