    Default German helmets.... a collection I bought locally a few years ago.

    Hi, this is a collection of German helmets I bought a few years ago... at least 5, this was them in the previous owners room. They are still packed away in the boxes i bought them home in all that time ago. The chap who I got them from was a long time collector and only kept good examples. So one day I will have fun opening all the boxes.... it will be just like Christmas, but better

    ... I don't think there's anything much I can say to this... it's like looking at my dream collection. I dread to think of the cost!

    Lets hope you picked the right ones , however cannot understand the reasoning for buying them and then keeping them in boxes. Odd...

    Schwerpunkt,
    What do you mean you hope I picked the right ones? if you mean "original" then don't worry yourself on my account. My helmet collection numbers 300+ with the majority coming from here on Jersey so "original" unplayed with items collected over the last 40 years. When I started there was no real need to have repro kit here as there was so much good kit still all over the place.
    Basically they are still packed away as there is too much to get out and display. Having it is just as important as putting it on a shelf.

    That maybe so, but I think it best for collections to be out so they can be seen instead of hidden away from view, especially such a fantastic collection such as this

    Thanks

    I sort of agree but in my case its not possible as my collection consists of thousands of items. I have a German bunker filled with kit which is on display throughout the summer months 7 days a week and then about 2/3rds more at home. Its just not possible to get it all out as much as i would like to.
