    I would probably say the M42 Normandy Camouflage....I would post up a picture, but there are so many fakes that it is hard to differ them from originals.

    Other than that, a complete Irish Vickers Helmet with the badge is extremely rare.
    It is hard to tell which of these two rare helmets are the rarest.

    Regards,

    I reckon it would be the one the germans were desiging towards the end of the war, which eventualy became the design of the East German helmet. I know of three that are in collections, but apparently some were made and issued very late in the war.

    Pardon the incorrect order of the photos. I find this forum has extremely complex photo uploader and I cannot seem to get the hang of it just yet

    They must be part of the 'Washington Hoard' that were stashed in the US in '42 for when the Englishe Freikorps Paratrooper Medics were to march into the White House?

    Yeh I saw one for 300, and I just wasnt sure, but if a "hoard" was found, maybe they were a lot of them......one of those regrets that will haunt me for the rest of my life, ebay, i should have trusted you!!
