    Default 4 new helmets and my first US shell :-)

    Hello from France

    It has been a nice week :-)
    I receive 4 new helmets for my collection: a nice Mk. 4 (1945 dated), a Luftschutz "entnazifiert", a nice Adrian 26 "Génie" et my first M1 shell.

    I dont have money any more, but what a week



    US shell:







    British Mk4









    The Gladiator Luftschutz











    last but not least, the Adrian 26 "Génie"









    A "hard to read" name












    Thank you for reading

    I always considered it a success when you leave with no money left in your pocket

    Really like that Adrian..something that I still haven't added to my collection.

    Thanks for showing.

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    Nice finds buddy. We all experience the "out of money" syndrome. It is a true sign of being an advanced, avid collector.

    M-15 adrian helmet liners have some prongs to attach the liner spaced out by some corragated metal, M-26 adrain helmet liners just clip in and some very good finds Jean.

    Just to educate myself. What does the white strip on the french M26 mean? Also what time frame is the 1945 dated on the British MKIV? I had read that these were late/post war issue and I'm just wondering how late in 1945 this one is.

    The MKIV overlaped the time frame the MKIII was made altought the MKIV started being manufactured in 1944 and as this one is still in chocolate brown I would say it probably was never issued or used not that long after WW2 as they started going over to olive drab.

    please correct me if I am wrong.

    this is a great find all in one week, you probably saved money by getting all these now, sometimes it could take years to piece a nice collection of helmets like this together

    your time is money too, you saved money by getting them all now
