About German Helmets
The brave soldiers who faced the enemy, fought for victory, and changed the course of the world are fading into the history books. The last remaining artifacts of those brave men exist only in battle-scarred uniforms, the steel and leather German helmets, and the worn boots gathered by collectors to provide a memory of the era. The large selection of WWI and WWII memorabilia on eBay means that becoming a collector is as easy as choosing the artifacts that you love. German helmets found in countries such as the Ukraine and Latvia offer durable and recognizable reminders of another time. With their Wehrmacht decals and their leather chinstraps, these helmets feature a different design for each branch of the German military. The coal scuttle shape of the steel helmet took the place of the spiked helmet used during the beginning of WWI, and remained throughout WWII. Ventilated horns covered with small rivets allowed air to circulate through the helmet, often seen on highly collected German helmets. Pick out the helmet that fits your collection and choose a lasting memory of the past to keep alive.
