Issue #3 Sometimes I have to keep them!!!!
Good day fellows. I hope you all are keeping well as my customers in the UK like to say. I know you guys watch my blurb on the Helmets for Sale section about items that are "On the Way". I know a number of you were waiting for the M1940 Veteran Bringback Heer Normandy Camo when I posted it up. I did purchase this one with the intentions of selling it, but when I opened the box and held it for about 5 seconds, I knew this one had to stay. Being a huge WWII history buff or nut as my wife would say, I love the items that are connected with the Normandy Campaign. This one just spoke to me. I will also confess that I am more collector at heart than I am a dealer. Sure, I am a dealer, but I have to tell you, I would keep a whole lot more if the damn economy here wasn't in the tank. There are still helmets that I truly miss and wish I could have kept, but at least I know where most of them are (DB, you know the Q66 Single Decal Bulge captured SS helmet that I am referring to!)
So, don't be mad if occasionally I have to put one of these helmets back. Often times I get rotten pictures from sellers and just don't have a good idea of what a helmet is actually like until I receive it. Anyhow, I did want to feature this gorgeous M1940 Normandy Camouflage helmet in my blog as I do feel that this is truly a Classic Normandy camouflage pieces and to me has all the earmarks you want to see in a WWII period German camouflage piece. This one has plenty of wear but is all there except the drawstring. The liner and the chinstrap are overall nice and it displays like a champion. The paint scheme is just awesome with the Tan base paint with Green & dark reddish Brown. There are even some nice green paint runs on the front. So many of the Normandy camos that I see are Luftwaffe pieces, so it is nice to find a Heer helmet. Overall this one is a combat experienced piece and a true battlefield pick up. This one came from a lady in Nashville, TN. Her husband's father brought this one back. Unfortunately, her husband was killed in a car accident several years ago and with him, died the details about the helmet. His name was Eugene Pahnke and he served in the US Army Air Corp. I was able to get some information about him on this website: http://aad.archives.gov/aad/series-list.jsp?cat=WR26
This is a good site that I found to research American Soldiers that served in WWII.
Enjoy the pictures of this beauty. I hope you guys like the Normandy Camo as much as me!
Until next time, happy hunting!
