    WW1 German M-16 camouflage helmet of the Prussian "Gardekorps", with The Name of the soldier. Size 64

    Beware of anything from Latvia. Some very good fakes come from there.

    Soldiers From 15th (2nd Westphalian) Infantry Outside The Guardroom

    I'm not seeing any Gew 98s, mostly Kar98as, and a couple of Gew 91s. Clearly an artillery unit, possibly some kind of Reserve unit judging by the age of some of the men.

    Advanced Guard catalogue

    AGM has quality pieces, Jeff is very knowledgeable and courteous, and in the past I have purchased items from them. Now however, I find I am no longer interested in waiting anxiously for the catalog to open so I can jump through the hoops like a trained seal. I have learned if I miss something...

    Our Fearless Leader is injured

    This. All we care about is how soon you can get back to work, and shepherd us through the complicated world of pickelhaubes and the forum. You can probably restitch visors from your hospital bed, rather than wasting time being a layabout. Seriously, take care of yourself and heal. Steve

    Garde Du Corps NCO tunic

    Nice ebay score. Thought about it myself, but coming from Turkey, I was a little concerned, especially with such a low price.

    Trip to Idaho and the famous Gus Collection

    Looks like a great museum, but the mannequin's pose is a little strange. Looks like he's taking a leak.

    My collection of sea caps of the Soviet fleet

    Sergei, One of my caps is of different construction, my feeling is it is older than the 1960s. It does not appear to have ever had the stiffener in the brim, and the lining is different.No markings that I can see. Any idea what it might be? Steve

    My paltry collection. Most date from the 1960s, my area of interest. Steve

    WTB Depaheg Patent Officer's Vulkanfiber Haube

    I once owned a Wurttemberg officer helmet set up the same way, short leg to the rear. Fiber helmet body, no extra holes, it was clearly made that way. Almost perfect condition. I thought it was a late helmet, the stars were retained by split pins, not nuts. The base could not be reversed, or the...
