    probably because its so rare there isnt much hope of anyone wanting one as its more or less impossible to find so then that possibly eliminates anyone having an interest. Any idea what the background of the one in the picture is though? the decal and paint arent anything like what I've seen before.

    Thanks

    Dimas, Were those Luft flight helmets modified by the airmen? I have seen pictures of Luft flight crew members who hammered bulges into the sides of standard combat helmets to accommodate earphones, but I have never seen a picture of a post m18 helmet with ear cutouts. Do you have any period pictures of any such helmets? It is, of course, an interesting piece and I appreciate Las Vegas posting pictures of it, but did expect some skeptics to question it, as it is something that most of us have never seen before. Thanks, Jim Geanuracos

    Guys its in the helmet book i mentioned ,and i asume is an origianl ww2 piece.I would have thought that this is now the helmet to really try and get,as rarity has always interested collectors of all antiques.It would be great to see one being worn in ww2.Im glad i was able to bring it to the attention of the collectors who have never seen or heard of it!

    oh and this is a real beuty because it also has the wooden clog painted on it for II/Zerstorer Geschwader 26 "Horst Wessel" it is also painted the red color. when it was issued it would have been bright red. many do not know why this was done but some speculate that this was done to increase visibility when ditching out over water
