    Has anyone else hear of a container coming over here full of original german helmets? Some one said they are due to hit the market in march. They will bring down current market prices. They also said they want to blow them out at $100 each including SS helmets.

    These or ones like them have been available for a long time. Still nothing to get too exited about as most are post war and none are in original configuration. I suppose they would make good reenactor helmets once repainted.
