Re: The Hartmann Collection

Here are some more pictures of his fine collection that Steve shared with us. I am very happy to say 2 of the helmets from Hartmann's collection are now in mine, and one is in my brothers. Had the great opportunity to buy them a few years ago. James https://photos.smugmug.com/FUN/i-Rw3nBRm/0/d3c9bfd...
