    Remember many modern ref books are authored by dealers in layman's terms be wary of real estate brokers if you've been reading here and elsewhere for four years you may end up paying a lot of money to just look at pictures.
    With some hands on knowledge and the wonders of the web nowadays I wouldn't spend too much on books chum.

    In my opinion reference books are a good tool, Even mechanics use reference books to fix engines..G

    The books I mentioned by Ken and Kelly are absolute must have's and contain context, content, background, and data not easily found on forums. The photos of decals and information in the photo captions are also invaluable. The Ludwig Baer book is not written by a dealer and is known as the Bible of helmets. Forums alone are dangerous IMO and the well balanced knowledgeable collector will have some key reference books, utilize group discussion on forums, and have a wealth of hands on experience. All 3 are invaluable to creating the base of knowledge a modern and knowledgeable collector requires.

    I'm well aware of Baer and have a copy do the works you mention contain the archived period files on camo and helmet finishes seeing the vast majority of questions on forums are over paint and decals?

    Why don't you buy them and find out for yourself.

    The books are well worth the purchase, it would take you months to trawl through the forums to compile an equivalent resource that you can carry around with you. Even then there is much you would miss in terms of context and details. Considering the price of these things spending $300 on books is practically free.
