    Thanks for the compliments guys,

    qotd, I dont have a soldbuch with that last name. I have 7 soldbuchs and 1 wehrpass.

    Earlier this morning I posted in another thread all the information, and pictures of my soldbuchs. They are in the link below (go to post #22 and 31 in the following link if you would like to see what I have)

    Your welcome, by the way, what do you think of my soldbuch collection? I have accumulated it over the past 8 months.

    And, I certainly will try to buy the helmet.

    Thanks,

    Get the helmet, it's as nice as you can get relic-wise.

    By all means buy the helmet, but you need to realise that the rust is extremely heavy and has made the metal very thin and fragile, it will not be long before the top collapses completely unless you do something to secure the rust process, and to do that you will need to apply a rust inhibitor, the trouble with this is it might change the colour of the helmet therefore you need to make sure that any product you obtain will not interfere with the colour, the natural look and the decal

    Very nice, do you look for particular units, awards etc???? Or do you just get what you can get??? I suppose depending on the unit and awards etc the price would be different

    Maybe using some of that magic, odorless fish oil on the inside of the shell might secure the remnants enough to hold things together for a few more years. I think using it on the outside will discolor the shell too much.

    The fish oil only slightly darkens what's already there, doesn't add a colour!!!!

    Heres two pics, one before the bayonets were cleaned in hot soapy water and hit with fish oil. It does look shiny, but I find once it is dry, a mat spray varnish seals it nicely and gives a nice matt finish

    Well, here in Canada it's not all that cheap.. I know this for sure, because being 13 and using a 20 dollar allowance to buy items isn't that good, so 40 USD sounds great!
