    Default Dr. Ludwigs helmet.

    This helmet came to me around 20 years ago with a white medics helmet seen elsewhere in the helmet section. Both have had a hard life and this one had had a repaint for sure. Unfortunately the paint on this helmet appears to be parting from the helmet back to bare metal in places. Its the only helmet I have ever seen do this sort of thing but as its a local helmet to the Island and it came with another medic helmet I am loathed to part with it even if the paint is flakey. I am not positive but I think I may also be able to see the outline of a decal under the paint as well...what do you think?

    The flash glare makes it impossible to make a judgement on the paint. The personalization as well, it looks very well, messy is the word. I am hesitant to comment further because white photographs poorly to begin with and combined with flash glare it makes it difficult to make a judgement.

    Dr might not be medical dr btw, it was common in Germany for those with doctorates to refer to themselves this way, I have had several items to "Dr's" who were not medical doctors.

    Hi,
    Yes thats correct what your saying DougB. But having come with a white medics helmet there's a fifty fifty chance he was a real Dr. Either way still a good helmet albeit flakey.
