The German helmet was one of many that I had back in the day. I thought it was pretty cool looking. But like I said the Monkey Division helmet was and still is my helmet of choice.
RE: German helmets. When I was a kid a friend of my dad's gave me his war mementos - German helmet, belt buckle, Iron Cross, Swastika arm band and a number of pins. The buckle had what I swear was blood on it, and of course that's how I described it when I showed it to the kids in school. I wore that helmet (which I think is a firefighter's helmet minus the crest) many times playing war in a field by our house.Everything except the Iron Cross and helmet were lost when our house was flooded in '72...
Was there any holes on top for a crest?This is a confirmed German firefighter's helmet
Wall, go get em back! Quick!
I just used this pic in another post on comic ads...it is a Mattel M-16. No batteries involved. Pull the bolt back once and get 9 shots....long or short burst. Pull the bolt back 6 times and get a stream of over 50 continuous shots! And this sucker is LOUD! Manufactured in 1966. One false legend was that the M-16 actually used in Viet Nam was produced by Mattel. Actually the first versions of the military M-16 had plastic grips manufactured by Mattel.....and these grips had the Mattel logo on them. Complaints soon let to removal of the logo on the grips.
