New pictures of this totally untouched DR25 helmet. Always so nice to find these in true "as-found" condition. I was never tempted to clean it.

Nice is that both are marked for the same regiment
Thats not often the case with a helmet and a cover

My Father-in-Law remembered this regiment passing though his home town as a boy. The main thing about them was how noisy they were.

I'd be touching it all the time.

One of my favorite of Bruno's helmets in my Bruno folder.
Kaiser: 09 July 1997 - 12 October 2010.
Nina: 23 April 2002 - 31 July 2015.

Magnificent example, fantastic condition with uber markings. As usual, Tony is way ahead of me....but I am starting a Bruno folder on my computer!! We are very lucky to have you with us Bruno, thank you for sharing your wonderful collection.

Thanks to all of you for your nice comments. And a special thank you to Tony and Brian for the compliments. Not sure these are deserved but I do like to take and share pictures. And I learn a lot myself: Glenn has identified the original owners of several helmets I have posted...
