Norwegian Army Issued German M40 Combat Helmet. NS
In very nice condition with close to 100% of its green finish intact to shell, inside and out,the decals i would rate rate at 99%. The inside liner is complete and supple with only one tear to a finger. The chinstrap is in supple condition and is well marked. May i add that the liner pin washers are missing but that is not an issue with these reused helmets as all componenets were taken apart before being repainted and leather work dyed.
Victorian Leather Covered Glass Water Bottle.
Very nice private purchase item as by British Officers during Victorian era campains. The glass bottle is complete with the only damage being periof wear to the rim were the stopper has been taken off and on, bottle was hand blown as expected . The original stopper is maker marked. The leather cover is in very nice condition with no loose seams, has taken on a very nice colour from age and patina. The hanging strap is complete and in supple condition.
WW2 German John Bull Anti British Propaganda Shoot
A large German patriotic shooting target with a straking Anti British propaganda themed image to the centre. The figure appars to be John Bull in the British Channel surrounded by the oncoming German military forces, air and sea. The condition is good, no folds just minor staining , the top just inside the border has a bullet strike, not the best shot but luckily for us its save the central image. Measures 17 inches across.
