Default M15 Wurttemberg Metalhelme, with Cover

There was absolutely no hesitation here when this one showed up on the market, straight out of an old Northwest estate. The named cover was on the helmet when found. To add icing on the cake, the British Soldier who picked it up wrote a short note describing where and when. I was very happy to add this one to the collection recently as well.

Damn Chuck - you know how to find them. Are you sure you are not growing these in that garden of yours. They seem to just pop out of the ground. Interesting helmet plate with lots of detail. Cover does not sit that well on the helmet better leave it off as the helmet is worth seeing.
