M40 Single Decal Luftwaffe Helmet
« on: January 06, 2019, 11:06:30 PM »
   This came in to the museum last week. It was brought home by a Canadian veteran who later settled in New Hampshire. His Son married a Michigan girl and likes to visit our museum during the holidays. So, this year he came like Santa bearing gifts! Overall a nice helmet and the 7th one we have received in two years, including 2 SS helmets! It really is still out there guys.   Scott

Scott,

Great helmet.. Being from NH, I wish I would have picked this up... Oh well..

Now the paint color in your pictures looks apple green?? Is this just the flash or is this a different color.. Luft blue or grey??

  Just the flash, I really am a terrible photographer and should devote some time to getting better at it... It is Luft grey.  Scott

Scott,

I too have to learn how to take better pictures. Ironically, I have been taking pictures with my cell phone lately and they seem to be better than my Canon that I spent so much money on...

Well, there is always something to learn..

 Everybody I know says the same thing about cell phone cameras. The problem is I hate carrying that thing, its like a tether and my thoughts are that when I am out, I am already busy, so I don't need the calls, texts etc... I am sure that I will break down some day and use it, but for now I am the last land line hold out!   Scott
