    Actually, you are right Mr Mc Lakic, good eye.
    Any more pictures of the M4 Shermans? They look like m36 Jacksons to me?

    Try with Google. Type Sherman M4 US WW II main battle tank and you will find out. Believe me, it is so obviously. M 36 Jackson motorcarridge has different kind of cupola.

    decal is not original issue but it is real SS helmet with era painted decal. This helmet belonged to 7. SS division Printz Eugen. Man of that unit, consisted of Volksdeutcher from Banat and Romania, used to paint decals. There are couple of such helmets in Belgrade military museum.

    thats cool that you have the history to it. I bought my SS helmet, it was my first buy, but then I got it restored, so I'm not very happy I made that decision. I almost bought a k-98 combat bayonet, it was engraved with Printz Eugen division on the blade, but then the guy told me he had engraved it, so I passed on it 350.00 was just too much , especially when I found out he had engraved it.

    Mr Lakic,
    What does it mean "KUPOLA" . You mean tank turret???
    I believe you have a nice collection of helmets. Im interested in your fallschirmjager m38.
    Are you willing to trade or sell it ?

    Warm regards from Florida,

    Can we see a closeup of the hand rendered runes please? I have a friend, Fred Umbrich who served with the PE and wrote the book Balkan Nightmare. He never mentioned this but they were a proud unit.
