What the...?

Article about: I would assume this helmet is much more valuable than a standard one. Because I would think for this particular example that the decals were added during the war by a GI or very soon after.

    Default What the...?

    It looks like Johann got a little tired of making the same old SD Heer helmet at the factory every day, so when his boss wasn't looking he ran this one through the decal-erator a few more times...

    Or a GI with access to a load of new unused decals.

    I have seen similar ones before.

    That's the most likely situation I think. The sad/funny thing is, you know that one day someone is going to try to pass this off as being a 'Super Duper Elite Waffen-SS Eva Braun's Personal Bodyguard Helmet", and saying that it's obviously the real deal because it has so many decals...

    THis was sold by Bruce Hermann on the Grenadier Militaria site not that long ago. GI or early collector art is what it seems to be Ade!

    I agree with Ade - GI embellishment.

    You guys will probably think I am crazy but I really like it.
    It is an outstanding piece of soldiers art.

    At least it's a great piece to check out if you want to see several examples of the same decal. : )

    That is a test sequence, for Luftwaffe flier recognition.

    Out of curiosity, are helmets such as this enhanced in value due to the 'extras' or do they decrease because they've been added to or does the value remain about the same?
