I believe as well that it's nothing more than ignorance.

I was only joking. When I was growing up any German war souvenir was a "Nazi" this or that. I suppose we should call US gear "democratic". Both would be equally silly, but I would expect a "Nazi" helmet to have a swastika at the very least.

Am I blind? Where do you see it's a size 60? Judging by the 54 liner it should be a size 62...
