    I take it Doug that these are your collection and i might add that they are excellent, what fantastic collecting ability you have and an eye for the very best, i would dearly love to even be in the same room, you could leave me there for a week and id even bring my own pillow, can you show your entire collection any time soon, i think many members especially those who ask so many questions about authenticity could learn a great deal from such a collection

    You have a hell of a nice collection Doug, some of the rarest helmets represented and in a amazing collection!!
    Great looking picture.

    As Doug already have listed some of the rare helmets known, I would like to add M35 double decal Danzig helmet.
    Would be a great find to get one that is not a dug up.
    Political helmets as Feldherrnhalle, SA and Political leader helmets are rare and hard to find.

    Anders quite correct, the DD Danzig helmet is very rare! I was able to do a hands on magnification inspection of the one that broke here, what a helmet, too bad it was in such poor shape. To find a real one in an attic in untouched condition would be a Holy Grail helmet to be sure! I always love the photo of your SA/FHH helmets together! I think you and I are the only ones to own such a combination.

    @HuntfortheIronCross, no that is a mint EK2 in the background but I am fortunate to own 3 Knights Crosses, all of them attributed completely and 1 that even has the original award document.

    @davejb thanks for the compliment, I can spend hours down there at a time myself. Close the door, put on some period marching or choral music and get lost in time! Once I get past the Christmas season I will throw up some photos, as Anders knows I am waiting for an electrician ;-)

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
