I would like to show this original 101st airborne helmet as a prelude to possibly selling it. I have had it listed on ebay but have withdrawn it simply because I am not confident of the listing and the audience or market that I am reaching. I am an amateur historian first and a collector second so I am quite out of touch with 'the market'. I look forward to hearing comments. The helmet was given to an American author researching the Ardennes offensive back in the late 1990's and is I am sure completely genuine. It is a shell only but the 506th stencils are very clear.
Perhaps some of you may enjoy seeing it firstly after which I may move it to the classifieds page.
