James:

Certainly all hard to find.

I've never seen a Kinder Uberzug. That and the Kurassier cover are particularly nice.

A fellow collector's wife once commented, that she could not understand why we spent all this money to buy a pretty helmet and then goes crazy when we find an old rag to cover it up.
