Tank crew helmets sold as historical novelty/curio relics only, and not intended for actual protective or other use. No warranties for wear or use given or implied. All helmets are sold fully and meticulously cleaned of all dirt, dust, mildew and other evidence of long, warehouse storage, thus they are ready for display out of the shipping box. Helmets priced as "Discounted Examples," though still unissued, will show any or all of the following: noticeable shelf or storage wear, possible broken stitching in areas, some slight distortion to shape, dings, dents or slight bulges to shell, etc. These helmets will still display nicely but cannot be compared to the two higher-priced conditions we offer. If you plan on wearing a helmet for some form of display or event purposes, the "Discounted Examples" or "Select Examples" have proven the best choice for this application. Your satisfaction is fully guaranteed. All helmet purchases may be exchanged or returned for any reason, provided the item is not damaged, used or worn (try-ons excluded) and advance authorization is received ORALLY VIA PHONE, within seven (7) calendar days from your receipt (as determined by shipping records). Refunds will be less postage and insurance.
This is absolutely the last roundup of a classic piece of WWII GI headgear, worn by US Army and Marine tank crews and motorcycle couriers in every combat theater. Every one of Georgie Patton's tank and tank destroyer crews were issued this exact same helmet style for their bloody and brilliant armored clashes with German panzer divisions throughout Europe. Our tank crew helmets are guaranteed to be genuine WWII production made prior to 1945, NOT current copies. These are tangible, historical artifacts of the greatest and most challenging period in the history of the US military, unlike comemerative paintings and novelties being currently marketed seemingly everywhere. Make an investment in posterity that helps recall a time of honor, dignity and bravery under the most severe circumstances - while our supply lasts!
