    Default The Other Hlaf of Doug's "Good Day"

    This week a box arrived from Canada with the other half of my trade with Doug enclosed. Inside was an M42 Double Runic SS helmet, Lot # 1592, a former white wash combat killer. The EF decal is fairly intact, and the expected field applied Pocher runic shield attests to harsh combat conditions that the SS soldat endured during the War. The last three pictures show the new acquisition with its older brother in arms, also a combat used double runic SS helmet, an ET 68 shell with a factory applied ET runic shield on the right, and a Pocher shield on the left. I will say that I am one satisfied customer and will let the pictures say the rest. (Thanks again Doug.) Hope you like these two rare birds. Jim G.

    Reassuring to say the least... as they came from a reputable source. That in itself makes collecting all the greater. Nice Lids and the history that follows it. Regards Larry

    Hi Larry, The EF was from Doug. The ET came from Al Barrows 20 years ago. Both will be in my custody God willing for many decades to come. Jim G.

    One of the most satisfying thing about this hobby for me is making friends along the way with which you can make trades for items you seek for your collection.

    In return for giving up something of equal importance which I have enjoyed for a long time, both collectors can both fill wants or needs therefore refreshing both collections and increasing collecting knowledge, experience and enjoyment for both parties for years to come.

    Jim, I am very happy you like this ex-winter double runic EF SS M42 (what's not to like LOL) and I am equally happy with my end of the deal. It was a lot of fun talking trade and helmets with you, mind you it's always enjoyable talking helmets and collecting with you.

    For those who haven't seen the thread on what came my way from Jim or what would cause me to give this one up (I have 3 more double runics as well LOL) : http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/steel-...eryday-425775/

    Two bloody marvelous SS double runic lids Jim.
    It would have been heart breaking to let go of the traded helmets, but I think the end result has justified it.

    Brad.
