In my travels through the murky depths of the online world I picked up information that I like to share with you.
While I pay less notice to ground finds myself I still found it an interesting topic nonetheless.
The paintwork shown below is all ‘newly’ painted in ground dug helmets. In some names mistakes were made like the dotted e which does not exist in the German language.
You see these are all very extensive additions , name with detailed unit and so forth. Things we rarely see in ‘above’ ground finds.
The source of these ‘upgraded’ helmets is believed to be in Russia. The personalization adds a lot of character to a rust pitted battlefield relic and that’s what collectors look for. Do not be fooled.
That’s all for now.
Thank’s for the information !
Interesting and useful information Frank. Thanks for the update.
