    sorry but i am skeptical of this story,,,
    to be honest i,m also sceptical about this story......!no ofcourse i believe there realy existed that old man who captured BIG NAZI BOY and his metal :KEPIMY RESPECT TO THAT OLD AMERICAN SOLDIER MAN-RIP). but looking at helmets liner makes me wonder-man that helmet is hard used.lether damage all around liner is good sighn about well used liner.But i don,t believe that Obergrupenfuhrer been used that helmet so many and so hard,to make that kind of damage to liner.these guy moustly prefer hi,s own visors and spend moust of time in bunkers or safe places. And if that helmet spend last 60 years in hatbox-it could not get that kind lether damage to liner. JUST MY OPINION,AND DON,T TAKE IT PERSONAL-:just two way,s-liner is from other helmet,or highly rebuilt helmet on to REAL OLD MANS STORY.i,m not so naive to believe such AMERICAN DREAM storys,and also i,m very sure that all vets and other military persons who ever got eny conection with HIGH NAZIS-have been visited many uears ago from high level regalia hunters.SORRY FOR MY UNRESPECTIVE OFF TOP.WITH ALL MY RESPECT-OSTLANDDIGGER

    This nice grey cap is also on said website, and not seen usually at swap meets, hock shops, or also in Baltic locales. The black cap was also sold recently in 24 hours.

    This posting is not intended as a commercial endorsement, and the poster has no personal interest in said item other than I should buy it, and have instead to buy a car.

    But these are remarkable and rare caps. They are not my property.


    Also, if a reader wants then to post some offensive a libelous allegations here about personalities (including mine), then kindly think twice before doing so, as the administrators here enforce the rules with some dispatch, as recently shown in another case. There are other sites where the murder of reputations of dealers and collectors rules the realm, so you can go post there.

    Please keep your posts here civil and express your opinion like a gentleman or gentlewoman, and keep this site functional and not like the dung heap as had elsewhere. Also, deploy evidence of a credible and tangible kind to support your assertions.

    The Frank helment is a remarkable piece, to be sure, and the piece has been vetted by some leading authorities in the US. You can surely disregard their opinions as you wish and proclaim same to the world. We are all free to believe or disbelieve anything and everything. The tendency today is the latter, of course, which might make for amusing reading on blogs, websites, and "twitters," but it does not correspond with reality.
