I agree what a nice pair of helmets .

I see exotic helms like this and always wonder were did they come from in the 100+ years of issue ?

Well, Ed, super HELMETS! The models are pretty too. I'm going to get both Hessens like those when my rich uncle gets out of the poor house.

I really do need to know more about this....

Your Frauleins all seem to have the correct size!!! (-helmet size it is Ed!!! Do not misunderstand). Now (56 1/2...) I only seem to pay attention to the Hauben....at this (st)age. The challenge needs to be exceptionally worth the effort to have a closer look...
But seriously:
1-You have "breast men"...
2-You have "bottom men"...
You count yourself as a....#1 or #2: What's it gonna be???
Me: #2

Unfortunately I can't see the last picture, but on the question of 1 or 2, I am also a #2.
I am 52 but still like looking at women off-course, :P

Thanks for your expertise gents :D

Is the picture still invisible ? I stopped working with photo-bucked.

As for your poll, Francis, with me it is almost equal, but if I must choose, I would say nr1 ,
and age (51) does not slow me down , if fact it is getting worse :oops:
