Issue #18 Good ' ay Mates 

Well, I finally found a few moments to update the blog.   It has been an incredibly busy summer around WW2GermanHelmets.com.    I have been running at mach speed trying to keep up with all the orders and the new inventory.   This has been a summer with a number of significant wood work finds!    

First order of business, I want to send a shout out to all my new customers this year from down under in Australia & New Zealand.    Our largest growth segment during 2011 has been in Australia & New Zealand.    I have to say that you fellows down under are super to deal with.   You guys have a real passion for the WWII artifacts and many of your fathers, uncles, grandfathers, etc served during WWII.    I recently read in a biography that Field Marshall Erwin Rommel feared and respected the soldiers from down under most of all.   Thanks fellows for your business.   We are glad to have you on board with WW2GermanHelmets.com!    

Now, let's talk about the roller coaster ride in Washington and on Wall Street during the late summer.    If this debacle over the debt ceiling is not a good illustration of why we need to clean house in Washington DC, then I have never seen it!    I don't know about you fellows, but I run a household and business based on a budget.   Imagine how things would go for us in our daily lives if we decided the solution to our financial struggles were to simply borrow more money that we can't pay back.    That would be a formula for financial disaster!    I have yet to figure out why these boneheads in Washington DC think that theory can work.   In my years in the Corporate World, I never saw a business cut themselves to profitability nor did I ever see a corporation become more successful by burying themselves in more debt!    Apparently the folks in DC all missed Economics 101 during their college days!   I really am looking forward to the end of this protracted recession, and I am really hopeful that the election in 2012 will yield us a completely new roster of folks that have some common sense and can get America back on the right path!    Ronald Reagan once said, "Folks, government can fix your problems....government is your problem".    That is a statement that really sums up our current situation here in the US!  

(Bank run of 1929)

Now for a little good news.   In spite of a sluggish economy the WWII Militaria has held up fairly well.   The common pieces have seen some slight depreciation due to growing inventories, but the rare pieces still command top dollar.    I am still seeing the more rare and desirable pieces grabbing top dollar.     All I can tell you is the purchase the best condition pieces you can afford as choice condition pieces will hold up better as a long term investment.    I know that this is a hobby but hey, you do need to consider the investment side of things as well.    

MAX Show 2011 - Pittsburgh PA (Monroeville Convention Center)


In closing, I thought I better mention the MAX Show that is coming up in Pittsburgh Sept 29-October 1st.    This is a great show and you can bet that WW2GermanHelmets.com will be there!    I always love going to Pittsburgh and the Max Show staff run a great show.   Here's a link to the show.   Please be sure to come by my table and say "hello".   The shows are always great for connecting names with faces.     Here's a link for more information about the show:


Until next time....happy hunting!!!!

Payment Methods and Shipping   

Cash, Check, Money Order, PayPal, Visa/MasterCard, and Bank Transfer are all accepted.   I also am pleased to accept layaways.   Simply pay 1/2 down, then pay the remaining balance within 30 days.  Once the balance is paid, I will ship your item promptly. 

There will be a 4.0% fee for PayPal purchases. For PayPal, simply provide me with your e-mail address and the item(s) you want and I will forward you a PayPal invoice.   MasterCard/Visa purchases include a 3.5% processing fee for US and international orders.


Items will be shipped after the check clears for items paid with personal checks. 

Shipping will be handled on a quote basis.  Generally we use UPS for domestic as the tracking is superior and the service very reliable.  We can  offer FedEx & USPS shipping as well.   

International shipping is also on a quote by quote basis.  I will ship to any country that shipping is available.   Be advised that if you are in a banned country, the risk for customs seizure is yours.  For International shipments I recommend using USPS Express International Mail as it can be tracked.  EMS is more expensive, however less services with the US Postal Service put you at risk for loss as the tracking capabilities are limited.  For the safest and best tracking as well as the fastest transit time, I recommend United Parcel Service, International Door to Door Service.  For shipments with low value declared without proper insurance, WW2GermanHelmets.com cannot accept liability for loss or damage.
