Recommended Posts

Looks like a regular little production line :unsure:

 

I sold a nice fixed bail shell to Italy recently - i wonder if it's suffered the same fate :crying:

Doubt it. Their/his stuff is better than this rubbish. What a waste...

As long as his stuff remains this ugly, I don't think we'll have to worry about these being mistaken for legitmate collectible helmets.

Oh, yes, my stuff will remain this ugly, don't worry ;) Since those pictures are quite...let's say "old", I guess my helmets looks even uglier now.

(Seriously) is someone talking about me? OK:

N. 1: I do not sell fakes.

N. 2: I restore-refurbish-repaint helmets upon request, average reenactor is my usual customer, sometimes collectors.

Here in Italy those interested in U.S. helmets knows what I offer, my stand is well visible in the biggest militaria shows, too.

Average collectors asks me expert advice, spare parts, so...go figure.

Also, I re-sell the book of Peter Oosterman, "The M1 helmet of the WW2 G.I", it's always on top of my table, at the show.

 

(Less seriously) you'll never see my ugly helmets offered on ebay as "just found in an italian farm along the river Po", maybe they're listed as "made by a drunk italian farmer" :thumbsup:
