    Mine is not quite as spectacular as the others shown here - which are great by the way! But, I think its pretty interesting and for me it's great as it was discovered buried on a building site in Berlin recently just a few hundred metres from the Reichstag building. It even has traces of white paint all over the shell, I wonder where it saw action before it finished up in Berlin? The red dot on the map shows the location of the building site in relation to the Reichstag. ...........As much as I like this helmet I'm prepared to look at a trade, Doug, if it's something you feel you can't live without in your collection although I know how much these things are worth so don't try to rip me off!....lol

    Default Fhh,dr ss,

    This year I picked up a few dream helmets because, for the first time in my 50 years of collecting, I was able to bring myself to part with helmets that I had acquired over the years. I traded a few really nice pieces for 3 super pieces. The 2 brown helmets, an M35 Double Decal Feldherrnhalle and an M33 Duckbill Stabswache Rohm helmet (with decals defaced, probably after the Night of the Long Knives), both owned by Al B., had been on my "wish list" forever. The M42 Double Runic SS, from Doug B., appeared out of the blue. I already had one (an M40 published in the Hicks/Beaver book), but how can you pass it up when one of these gems is offered? I picked up quite a few oddballs this year, but these three are the best. I have been blessed with a very understanding wife! We marked thirty years earlier this month. Her gift to me was an M34 with Austrian Police Decals! I will post that one soon. Merry Christmas to you all, and good hunting. Jim G.

    Well this is the only one acquired this year for me so it will be my best!! M35 DD with good liner and chin strap. Real good paint but weak decals. Almost gives a guy an inferiority complex posting this after Dougs beauties !!!

    A lot of nice helmets posted here! I guess this M34 DD Civic Police helmet would count as my best helmet of the year. After looking for a nice one for about a year this one suddenly popped up through one of my favourite dealers this summer and I immediately lunged at it

    *Close to no sunlight around these parts this time of year so the pics below are ones from the original listing.

    Wow! These are all fantastic helmets!

    I picked up a few this year, but my best for 2014 is this nice NS M35 DD. So far the best in my small by growing collection.....

    (btw - no wax coating or polish on this. Just glare and fantastic paint)

    Regards,

    Michael

    P.S. And thanks to a great guy here for giving me advice on this!

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated
