As you can probably tell from the content of this blog, I am most interested in World War Two related items. I do also have an interest in World War One items, especially WWI German camouflage painted steel helmets.
I have always loved the look of WWI German camo helmets. Additionally, although the Germans had regulations issued about how they were to be painted, in reality each one is a little different since they were hand done. This allows for the endless small variations that us militaria collectors seem to enjoy finding.
This particular World War One German helmet is a nice original and is complete with chinstrap and liner.
