    Actually, when I saw that many unissued SS helmet covers together, I assumed they were reproductions. I just couldn't understand why repros were locked away in a glass case! Then I found out they were real. It wasn't until I got back on this forum that I found out the whole story behind them. I feel lucky to have stood two feet away from that many original SS helmet covers!
    Awesome! It is pretty amazing if you think about it. Sitting for 75 years and then being found!

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Here you go G. I thought there was another one with more detail on the find. Lot of typical useless posts on this thread but there are good details buried around pages 4, 5 or 6 on the find.

    A very interesting link... Kind of throws you back in time wondering "What else is out there" I like hoard finds, and the stumbled upon "Relics"..

    We can keep our fingers crossed G. Like a nice horde of unissued Waffen SS visors or Knight Crosses (two of my other bucket list items...)

    Hey Mike,

    Glad to see that you like the Waffen SS Helmet Cover! When you get back let's exchange the SS Helmet Cover for a true size 64 Helmet Shell.

    Regards,

    Welcome Drew to WRF. Hope you stay around. Lots of great people here and amazing items.

    You know I love the one I got ☺ but will go thru the tons of photos you sent and see if I want to switch to a 64. It's like trying to chose a favorite child. Not easy. They are all so different and unique.

    Great working with you from the beginning to the end!!
