M34 RLB - Small Decal
This is the second of these that I have been lucky enough to have found. The first went in a trade with Al B. several tears ago. This one went to Doug B. in a trade the next year. He offered it back a few months ago, and irrespective of my promise to my wife that I would not be spending any money on my addiction until the business turned around I weakened and got this one back. These are quite rare. The last shot is of 2 RLB's that are no longer mine. I added it to show the difference in the size of the standard decal versus the smaller variant. Hope you like it. Jim G.

Very nice helmet. I passed up a large decal M34 a year ago and am kicking myself now!!
Very nice Jim. Nice that Doug gave you the option to buy it back. Good man.
And sometimes you just have to dig deep because you never know when an opportunity is going to pop up...
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

That is a nice and interesting RLB helmet Jim, great that you got it back.
Me and Ken did use that decal in our new book "German Helmet Decal of the Third Reich"
