So at the grandmas house for this holiday to bring her to our house since she's no longer mobile and as always Im scrounging around to find junk that may interest me while she's getting ready. There's always something new at grandmas house.

Anyways, I found the helmet liner that went with the helmet that I used to play war with when I was a kid. I wore the liner more because at 5 yrs old, the helmet was a little heavy.

But anyways hawley liners I guess dont hold up well to years of kids playing with them, as my dad and his cousins played with it, then me.

I wish I knew what happened to the other stuff. The helmet used to hang up in the garage next to a pair of rough out boots, M41 field jacket, M40 German helmet and a moth holed German tunic with a dagger in the pocket. The dagger I still have the parts of, but the rest I guess rotted away.

Guess I should be thankful my dad and his friends didnt entirely lose or destroy all the junk grand dad brought back and let me play with it some.

David, the sweatband in that helmet is mega rare. Obviously the leather's rotted out, but the spring clips are super early type, and very desirable. Nice find. Are you coming to Dallas this weekend? Call me fool.

Is mega rare more rare than super rare? I would suppose so. But what is more rare than mega rare, super maga rare? That sounds proposterous.

Don't be stupid. Mega rare is the tripple dog dare of rareness. Nothing beats mega rare. Matter of fact, everything in my collection is mega rare, at least when I go to sell it.
