    Default What is your Holy Grail of helmets?

    Inspired by the recent thread of the photo with Himmler and Dietrich wearing their parade helmets in the SS helmet section by AZPhil, it begs the question: What is your Holy Grail of Helmets, the helmet that if you owned it, you could die a happy man?

    I find it a fun topic of conversation with collectors to see what everyone's Grail is. It could be the one helmet your missing from a collection to complete a "set", a helmet you have seen posted or in person that you covet, a helmet that is just near impossible to find, or even a very common helmet but one with just that specific "look" that melts you from the inside out.

    But it has to "exist"! No fantasy helmets like a double decal SS M38 Fallschirmjager or Hitlers WW1 helmet. ;-)

    Post away!

    I'm very easily pleased, a single decal Luftwaffe in pretty good condition would be nice!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Like gunny any helmet would please me, but if I had to choose a holy grail it would probably have to be a KM "Normandy" camo helmet like the one (or two!) Doug has. A close second would be a grey DD M35 SS.

    Doug, I hope you don't mind my using of a few of your images. There was a beautifully named example to a high ranking SS Officer Kelly Hicks posted here awhile back which I'd add, but I can't seem to find it.
