    Default A few more relics.....

    Ok, Been another cold and snowy day here so i did one of the few things that brightens the day up for me....Relic shopping!

    Picked up these 4 helmets from a local chap. He frequently goes to Poland and these are ones he's dug up himself. From the Hel-Peninsula. He has some fantastic relics but these 4 took my fancy today. I especially like the one with part liner and the Luftwaffe helmet that shows part of a name written inside it.

    Will get some better pics tomorrow in the natural light once we have a shelf up for them

    Thanks

    Itll be interesting to see close-ups of the name and remains of decals - if any.

    Here you go, i will try and get some clearer ones in the light tomorrow. No visible decal on the Luftwaffe one sorry, im only assuming it is Luftwaffe due to the blue paint on the inside (i might be mistaken)

    The other three pics show the sides of the other 3 helmets with what might? be remains of decals but i'm not 100%.

    Thanks for the comment

    An interesting "flat" vent pressing on the luftwaffe one Vicki - if we saw that today on a non-relic helmet we may just cry foul .....

    is it flat vent? Looks raised to me? the bottom left helmet in the picture showing the four is the luftwaffe one i believe?
