    Did you include this one into your collection Doug?
    Yes the owner of the helmet sadly passed away from a hard batte with cancer, he was a friend. I have bought it from his estate and it will be something to remember him by as well as being maybe the rarest "SS" helmet.

    Condolences on the loss of your friend Doug, but i"m sure he would be pleased to know it now has the finest home in which to reside, and my Heartiest congratulations! truly a "one off" and i couldn't think of a more deserving owner.

    Best Regards

    A sad memento of a friend Doug but you have one of the rarest lids on the planet to remind you of that friendship !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    What a superb result but alas tinged with the loss of a friend, but the helmet will always be a sincere and valued memento of a friendship and the knowledge that another true officianado of the collecting world remains its custodian , my condolences to you Doug but also my appreciation for saving this true beauty of a rarity, possibly the first and last one we'll ever see
