    Just thought leaders like that where always being presented with special things ,it may be fanciful but maybe he was given a gold plated one .????????

    Well as a World War One Veteran, he was likely sick and tired of wearing a helmet. But somewhere there is at least one Pickelhalb and a M-16 helmet with his name in it.

    At the end of WWI every German Soldier wore an M-16, just because no photographs exist does not mean the helmet did not exist. The question is did he have an M-35? He probably did, hell I have an M-35, it does exist, but there is no photograph of me wearing it.

    Hi, I used to have a few m35's, of which I have pics, but none of me wearing them, maybe I don't exist?
    Interesting thread.

    Sorry guys, but old Adolf indeed had an M35 DD Heer, which is now sitting on my shelf! Liberated by my next door neighbor on 5/8/45 and given to me as a child. I forgot the neighbor's name, but he was an honest fellow, so there is no doubt of the authenticity of the piece. Mint, and for sale - only $45,000, with, of course, a certificate of authenticity signed by yours truly. Anyone interested? Cash only, no inspection or return privileges, but a chance to own a real piece of history! Jim G.

    Hello-it was stated in the recent British TV series 'Hitlers Bodyguards' that the peaked cap he wore was 'armoured'-certainly film footage taken near the front in Poland 1939 with Polish aircraft bombing nearby only shows the cap on bonce-Hitler was always very image conscious-only 1 pic exists showing him in a Party kepi as he didn't like the look-perhaps he liked the idea of being the only German in the world without a steel helmet.
