    3 - Color Spray Camo FJ Helmet

    A very lucky score the other day from an old farmer I have picked up items from over the years, but never knew he had such a piece. And he had no idea I collected FJ. Luft Feldpost number comes back to 11./FJR12. Late Italian Campaign. Absolutely untouched with early liner assembly, late steel slotted bolts, and does not appear to have a decal under the paint.

          Lucky guy!!
          Always buying combat award citations (especially Eisernes Kreuz) and Soldbücher/Wehrpässe linked to the Western Front 1944/45 (Ardennes, Eifel/Hürtgenwald, Aachen, Rhineland), no matter what unit!

            Awesome Willi, great find!
            It looks similar to this one - also 1944/45 late Italian Campaign "1./Fsch.Pz.Jg.Abtl.1"
