"My American Cousin"

Post by Arran » Thu Dec 27, 2018 9:07 pm

Firstly, Season's Greetings! Many of you will have seen this helmet when it was first unearthed by Peter S., and you may have wondered where it went. Well, it travelled north of the border, although not too far, and now resides with a few of its relatives. Certainly the addition of the year for me!

Cheers,
Arran.

Thank you. In the new year I'll start some threads in the General Headgear section on other non-German Pickelhaben from Chile, Argentina, Colombia etc. etc.
