    Default Waffen SS Camo Helmet Cover

    So, my 50th birthday present to myself has arrived. Another of my bucket list items has now been crossed off. Just a couple dozen more items to go.

    Took a while to pay it down. But the seller of these was great to deal with. Very helpful.

    This is the 2nd Pattern (with foliage loops). Late war. Size 64 (although it fits much better on my 62).

    For those of you who remember these covers were part of the 2014/15 "horde" find that was shown at the SOS in 2015. These were found in an outbuilding of an old factory in Bavaria in wood crates. The factory did not produce these so a bit of a mystery of how they wound up there.

    A nice long thread on these over at WAF. Can post if anyone is interested.

    All pictures are from the seller (I've been away and haven't been able to take my own pictures).

    Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

    Michael

    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

    Thanks Phil. 50 comes just once. I hinted to the wife but she didn't bite.

    I saw these at the SOS in 2015. Amazing find! You are fortunate to have one. I'm still waiting on my lottery tickets to hit...

    Thanks. Yes. I am fortunate. I never would have been able to justify getting one otherwise. And even then it took me many many months and holding off on buying other items and packing my own lunch!

    Lucky you however to see them at the SOS. What was the reaction like when they were displayed? I've seen pictures of a dozen or so in the glass case. Amazing.

    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!
