    Default The German Stahlhelm (period photos)

    Hello Gentlemen,
    As Adrian kindly agreed for me to open this thread in his subforum, i would like to thank him...

    I tought that it would be interesting for us to have a sticky thread that would show german steel helmets "in action" on period pics. The only condition for posting is copyright free photos only in order to avoid any problem...
    So let's the party begin and i hope that there will be many posting members as this steel helmet is still a "best seller" among collectors all around the world...
    I hope you'll enjoy this tread
    Thanks
