    Default nuttin' fancy M40 relic

    Its a drug I tell ya! ........ I see a relic with a little decal left, a little paint left, a little shell splinter damage and a bottom shelf price and I'm gone again

    This came out of Latvia ( that's where the seller was based at least ) but it's another relic of the Russian campaign that isn't a TOTAL rust bucket.

    Not everyone's collecting choice I know, but it'll do me.
    Cheers, Dan

    ( sorry about the exposure, but the Aussie natural light is a bit harsher than up north ......might need to shell out for a filter )

    I like it too. A relic like this undeniably saw action and certainly generates a lot of thought. And like you say at bottom shelf prices a reasonable collection can be built at a relatively small cost.

    It was a $30 purchase which is fine with me - trouble is, shipping down under added the same again - bah ( but what can one do )

    Nice looking 'been-there' helmet Dan. These are appealing
    to me as well, though I have only one relic lid
    at the moment.........
