    Stunning items they are.
    I had a grabenpanzer in my first collection; it was complete, painted silver to protect it from rust and the curves of the schoulder were cut off so it would fit against a wall....
    I also had the helmet shield, but that one came much later. Just by coincidence I saw it laying on the floor of a collegue who cleared houses in France, we did a lot of buisiness, so he gave it to me for free. As I wasn't in to militaria any more I gave it to friend who still had his collection from the senventies , but never baught a new item sinds.
    They are on my list ...again, now!
