    Always with the 37mm's. That 37 you ended up with and I believe you called it a US sub cal.? It was the one with the flat tip. Must have been 5 or six years ago.

    A collecting minefield no half! I had nearly 100, all displayed. Could never get the experts to agree on what was good and what wasnt on 3rd Reich helmets (the only thing they'd ever agree on was that the stuff on the other guy's table was bad) so I never trusted myself to get into collecting them. Having collected antiques for years I knew paint and it's ageing so felt pretty confident collecting WW1 German camos. But there is stuff out there that is so good it comes down to; do you believe it's real? I dont want to collect based on belief. I want to be able know. Plus the money involved takes the fun out of it too. You know how much more fun collecting ordnance is. Never worried about proving a helmet was "inert" though.
