luftwaffe size 62 question

Article about: Great idea. I have similar stands, but the knob should be small enough to fit through the gap in the middle of the liner avoiding contact with it - The helmet itself rests on the knob.......

    Great idea. I have similar stands, but the knob should be small enough
    to fit through the gap in the middle of the liner avoiding contact
    with it - The helmet itself rests on the knob.............

    Nice price, and a nice display of your helmets...............!

    The liner, although it has shrunk somewhat, looks like it is probably still
    intact and strong enough to accept an original string.

    I was thinking about adding a chinstrap as well as a string. Any suggestions on the best place to get one that would compliment my helmet.

    An original one will cost about $100, they are a pricey item, but it must be original, either with a date or without, a dated one will have to match the time period for the helmet, undated doesnt matter, your best bet would be arms fairs but there are enough collectors and forum members from your side of the pond to advise the best places

    I saw a dealer here recently, with 5 or 6 original helmet straps. They were not all that great
    condition wise. He was asking $150 to $250 each ! ( I think they are over priced
    even at $100 ) but as Dave says, you must have an original to complement
    the helmet and add value.......
    Regards,

    I have used Umbra paper towel holders in chrome and matte brushed metal. They cost about $15 and the tip fits perfectly through the liner fingers with a wide flat heavy base that prevents the unit from tipping over. Put a small piece of felt on the top which prevents any scratching of the interior of the dome and you are set.
