    I do not own that one, due to I collect only good condition items. But probably one of our members will get it soon, and by his wish I will look what I can do with that helmet

    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.

    Would love to have this one under the scope. Would love to see what the decal looks like after being buried for 70 years. Would make a great study.

    It is an excellent example of how a Helmet can be attacked by the elements , soil content etc etc and yet the decal can still survive !!

    Yes it is. I am not a big fan on relics, but this is one of the very few examples I like. I wouldn't mind owning this one.
