    Mollo suggest that the HQ of III Sturmbann of the SSPB 1 and later SSVT 1, i.e. "Deutschland" was M u e n c h e n.
    Of course, I imagine said helmet migrated with its owner from here to there in the years 1934-1945.
    In any case, we are glad it came to you and you share it here.
    Yes F-B, this is what I thought but I did not wish to venture a guess. As the American forces were so prevalent in the area I assume this is how it came to the American collector whom Kelly knew and who originally brought it into his collection so many years ago. Thank you for the high compliment, it is much appreciated.

    You know, since joining the forum I have been fortunate to see some of the rarest items on the whole planet within this hobby of ours, and that is soley down to some of the best collectors/historians/ etc there are in the world, these helmets confim this, rarity does'nt come close in describing them, it is a sheer joy to see them, and you Doug have two very golden spherical objects attached to your person and a well deserved new home for these two beauties, congrats, and I drink to your health (btw, remember the will )

    I am sure I have better sources on said issue or others here have primary documents. In any case, likely your treasure was somewhere in so. Germany along with so much else of this flotsam that has made it. This generalization does not apply to the Allgem. SS Sta. 22 uniform, however, which came from the Baltic, where US troops also advanced eastwards.

    It is a small point, of course.

    Buehne's personnel records must be in the Bundesarchiv in Berlin. There is, by the way, no Buehne as an officer in the 1936 rank lists.
    damit, basta.
