I'll start with a pic of part of my wappen collection:

I can't help thinking that everyone of these represents a haube, tschako etc that did not survive the test of time.

Tschako wappen, you can tell by the shape...a tschapka wappen is more curved to fit the round tschapka helmet shell.

Yes..... :D well those Camo Crocs, were a gift from you James, so I guess I sold out to your insidious Crocs Organization! :lol: However, as a good Canuck capitalist entrepreneur, I claim publically any, financial recompense from my Crocs being displayed on the internet.......I formally claim my feet and my Crocs being used in any future Crocs Adds. :D I obviously realize the value to Crocs of the Pickelhaube.com stamp of approval and my Canuck feet, so I demand my pound of flesh,,,,,,,preferably not in meat because I want US$ :lol: . My lawyers will be contacting you James!!

Joe, you told me you sold your Govt issue underwear years ago to someone in Frisco so, I'm thinking your Crocs are saleable too! :D I mean you now are a world renowned Haube expert and author so some $bucks could be made.

4 of those look like plates that I have owned before and
sold them to a fellow collector . I think the P B 10
is extra rare .

Oh yes, Brian.
Another fact: in the 60´s and 70´s, those helmets were so cheap and almost not collected. It was very common for collectors to only collect the different emblems and simply take them apart from the helmet :(
That happened even on flee markets or militaria shows. Emblems were already taken apart from helmets at the table!!! Better for transport...

I've noticed that on a couple of the threads there have been some post that don't appear to belong. They read as if they are answering something completely different. That they don't even go with this site.
