$14 each is a steal, they dont get any cheaper than that
they still look good on display with relic items like an old French water bottle , I have a few on my shelf with inert artillery shells, trench art, etc
Agreed the shells for 14 dollars each is a steal, while the price for the nice m26 is quite standard I guess. I often see them being sold for around 80 euros in that condition.
they make nice displays, the one on the left has no badge or liner but it was cheap so I picked it up to use in a shelf display along with a few other items
I think large shells look best for displays, but they are not as common as the small - med sizes
nice russ but dont forget these were used postwar so check if any are stamp dated on the inside crown and have a look if any of them are devoid of the frontal insignia holes i believe this type was for export to spain and at that price well worth having another look
Will do James, not sure when we're going to get a chance to get down to the shop though, getting pretty busy over here with the move, don't expect these things to sit around very long for that price. He always has a batch of new helmets there, M-1 clones mostly but sometimes something else, I picked up a Swiss M71 w/Cover from there for 14 bucks as well, and pretty much ever time we make a stop there we see some little kid running around with one of these 14 dollar treasures on his head and mom buying one for them....maybe the start of a future collector!
Oh and the tanker is here, photos taken, just need to break away from work for 15 minutes to post a thread.....
