double decal M35 reissue Heer

This is an SE 68 reissue Heer. It was originally an apple green double decal heer, repainted a combat green, with a second heer adler applied, and apparently another coat of combat paint over it. The tricolor appears to be the only one on this piece, but there are at least 2 eagles. Lot # 3495. Hope you like it, Jim G.

A thought to ponder…..

Just a thought, and I am only new here and don't want to tread on any toes, but one thing I have learnt collecting helmets,and commemorating my own families military history, and it is quite confusing, I had relis in the British, German and Polish armies in WW2 and my family has also served in the Australian Army, Navy and Air force, I think we need to realise we are only the custodians of our collections, they will be here after we are gone and wether we pass them down to our families or sell them on, we need to respect it, look after it and educate the people we pass them on to as to why they are special,put them in a historic context and what they represent be they from either side......

Just a thought
