Default Helmet Cover "Appreciation Day"

Decided to put a cover on a helmet for another display, and thought it was a good day to "enjoy what you have" and put them together.

Beautiful and awe-inspiring collection Willi!

Here is the only one I have and you have seen it. Obviously, not factory produced, but it was picked up by a GI during the later stages of Operation Nordwind.
