    Authentic? Repos?

    The one on the right is an older helmet, see the date on the rear visor, which was reissued as an M15. So all brass parts were removed, and exchanged for the grey ones. Both of them look completely original, nice gifts!

    The Kaiser's Collection

    I fully agree with that, the collection there is really awesome. I saw most of it on display there, it needs to be seen for all, they keep it above now, but a book, showing all would be excellent. I can understand why they keep it so private, none the less, it should be seen.
