Hi Ed,

the helmet is ok and original. But why was the helmet and the lion so polished? That should not be done.

Thank you very much gents.

Gunnar ,I did not polish the helmet ,it was this way when I bought it ,but anyway ,I guess this is also a matter of taste ,I always wonder what the soldier would think if he was to come back and see his helmet go dull and dark.

(Also, the pictures make everything shine harder than they are.)

Has anyone ever made a study of the
numbers stamped onto the " balls " on the loin ?
I think this one is 68 ?

The stamp on the nutbag is 63 ,the stamp in the back paw is from a different set of stamps ,maybe manufacturer and “abname”
