1983 the good ole days when Kube did not place everything in his auction.
When you were able to buy 3 officers helmets at one time
without breaking the bank .
L G R 8 helmet ; epaulettes and shoulder straps
2 Garde Dragoons
2 Garde Regt zu Fuss reserve officer with epaulettes
all direct form one family with the I D of each officer
Sept 24 , 2016
I still have these three 33 years later
More to follow

Cool Steve, in 1983 I was more worried about girls and getting out of High School, had a couple Third Reich pieces in the collection that where from family members. No Spiked helmets for another 10 years or so.

Young girls can be a lot of fun too !

I guess maybe a lot of us got started with
WW II family bring backs .
My father did not serve , but 2 of his brothers did.
I did get two Jap silk meat-ball flags
a Jap rifle and later a Jap sword
I guess that was my start

more later
I am pretty sure that I already have a photo
of the L G R 8 officers helmet
but for some reason never took the 2 G D R
and 2 G R zu Fuss reserve officer
but will try and do today

My father was a Lancaster mid upper gunner so no souvenirs unfortunately except a German infantry button given to him by a Brit POW. His crew picked up returning POW's after wars end. They also dropped food supplies to the Dutch in Operation Manna.
