Thankfully, there was bubblewrap all around
the helmet - though I should have used a
bunch of those styrofoam pellets.........

So where does this bad boy go next??
There is a great display at the US Army Yuma Proving Grounds here in deserts of Arizona that would be a great back drop for pic's to add to this world tour!!! HINT HINT HINT

I have two more places I'd like to take the helmet to and then I believe Mo is next on the list.

Awesome pics Joe! I bet the reenactors got a kick out of the idea for the project, that or they thought we are nuts......
I'm going to have a lot of fun making an album of all these pics when it gets home. It belongs to all of us now though I feel

In general, the reenactors really appreciated the helmet. I was walking around with it and they approached me assuming it was a wartime souvenir signed by GIs. When I explained what it actually is, they were still very impressed!
I told them that it's the only German helmet to have infiltrated the grounds of the Presidential Estate...
