Stalingrad dug Helmet

Hello All:
This helmet was dug in the vicinity of Gumrak Airport
by a friend of mine a few years ago. I’m no expert on
helmets but I believe it is a M35 double decal. It has no
liner and the shell is marked ET 64. It’s remarkable to
me how much paint is left on it after 60 Plus years in the
ground. Comments welcome.

Just got this a pic os a German soldier artillery badge medal ribbon iron cross and east front.All the info on back this was all done by the soldiers nephew.The Medal bar though is an American good conduct bar and im tempted to open the pic up at the back and replace with the ones that should be there. Although im torn between doing this as it is how it was done by his nephew and has never been openend only has cracks down edge and i could cause problems.Would love to know more about this guy though the pic was found in a locked wardrobe at a house clearance.

SA State Leadership School in Munich - Graduate Tyr Rune Insignia - RARE

Hello All,

I've seen only three examples of this insignia.

Two were on a black wool background. The third was not on any background.

Which of these is correct/genuine/authentic?

How rare are these insignia really?
