    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    I know that when I first started collecting back in the early 70's, I would always see more Luftwaffe helmets for sale at gun & militaria shows than any other type. SS helmets were few and far between.

    Not at all. They stopped together. Helmets were made in the same factories.
