    If one did pop up I would have tons of questions. Love to see what kind of black finish was used. Matte? Gloss? Semi-gloss black? Factory paint? Field? Decal or painted skull? I would love to research this blackie.

    Man I just love those blackies! Once u go black, you never go back.

    "What do you suppose the fate of the majority of these helmets would have been?"

    I'm afraid the vast majority were sent to Straubing prison to be melted down.

    Not sure where you dug that up, but thats pretty cool! =)

    I'm sure a couple escaped as with other SS lids during that time.

    Yes most were melted down, some reissued and a handful survived.

    The photograph is fantastic. I'm more used to seeing people looking for period photos of something rare that they have in use, not something in use that no one has seen before and everyone wishes they had

    Thanks very much for sharing

    What type of helmets were they? I can't tell by the photos, but they appear to be RZM's or maybe Droop Bills? I doubt we will ever know unless one does pop up out of the woodworks.
