    Hey guys! Itís been a while. Iím starting to collect again and I noticed I do like the tougher beaten up helmets compared to better condition helmets as they seem to hold more history even if post war damaged lol. But anyways on this one it seems like whoever wore it might have been in a Machine gun unit as it looks like 12 M.G.K although Iím not sure this helmet does interest me. Any and all opinions are welcome thank you guys!
    *Will be adding another picture of the other side soon it has a badly scratched decal.

    The decal is almost practically gone and seems to be done on purpose. But will get close up photos sometime later.

    Hey guys! It’s been a while. I’m starting to collect again and I noticed I do like the tougher beaten up helmets compared to better condition helmets as they seem to hold more history even if post war damaged lol.
    Well you buy what you like but on the question if a beater holds more history depends wholly on the fact if it has any history to be researched.
    If not than your decision is just a matter personal taste.

    It depends what you mean by beaten up helmets... this one just shows years of neglect, whereas a helmet showing genuine signs of heavy combat use - such as dings and perforations is an entirely different matter. But as Frank say's, it really is a matter of personal taste... although for some collectors, financial considerations may also influence choice too.
