Welcome aboard!

You say that you haven't got a Pickelhaube yet?

As a member of this forum I can advise you that you will need a garage, a basement, and a separate den now that you have embarked upon the wonderful world of Haube collecting!!!

I got my first one from a military/gun show.

It was a grey Metal Prussian and I paid $190 about 26 years ago.

Welcome to the forum.

Welcome Rob! Make sure you post some pictures here of your first potential purchase so we can help you make sure that everything is legit. Part of our mission here is to make sure that new collectors do not get burned with fakes.
Remember, Pillage first THEN Burn ...

I do agree with the other members. Be careful, if you buy one single Pickel, it won't stop at this number. Others pickels will necessarily follow !
