    Yes it was a ground dug helmet, the helmet was sent to me for assisting in authenticating as period and I have ADM pics of the TK decal. It is a phenomenal piece.
    That's pretty kool to have such a rare item in hand. Would love to see the ADM results. Thanks!

    Wilson Historical Center and this is the only one.

    Early units of the SS did in fact wear a large white skull insignia on the side of their helmets, although it bears no resemblance to the reproduction decal posted above. There are photographs of it being worn by members of Allgemine-SS foot regiment 68 on this very site at (SS helmet photo). It was also worn by members of SS-Sondersturm Renthof who became III. SS Totenkopfverbände Sachsen and it could be this connection that accounts for the association of this badge with the SS-TV.

    I remember your posting this one up, too bad the image is so far away. I wonder if it is the same decal d'alquen, it is similar in size and shape.

    BTW the Danzig helmet is coming to Canada soon. ;-)

    Doug, let me know if you ever post it.

    Would make a very interesting topic.
