#G1004 M1917 German Size 64
German WWI M1917 helmet in size 64 manufactured by F.C. Bellinger of Fulda Germany.  Complete with liner and chinstrap, never cleaned with lots of patina exactly how it should be after 100 years. Steel liner is tightly in place, the leather pads are intact and fairly well preserved without drawstring.  The chinstrap is nice, these are almost always missing as this one is exactly as found and original to the helmet. The steel liner has several well preserved clear ink stamps including 'FCB' (F.C. Bellinger) over '17' (1917) next to '64' (Size) under the front pad and 'AKF' partially under the rear right pad. Inside the dome is the heat lot code '351S'. Nice!  $925

#G1001 M1917 German Helmet Unit Marked 2. Machine Gun Kompanie
German WWI M1917 helmet unit marked 2. Machine Gun Kompanie!  The helmet is manufactured by Gebruder Gnüchtel, with faint smelting lot number.  Field grey paint with a slightly glossy finish correct for this maker, never cleaned or polished. The helmet is complete with original M1917 liner and chinstrap.  The chinstrap has an interesting period repair to one end. Faintly marked inside the flange ‘2. M.G.K.’ for 2. Machine Gun Kompanie.   The helmet is also faintly named inside the flange, although I haven’t been able to make it out.  A great piece of history for your WWI helmet collection, with very desirable provenance to a machine gun unit.  This helmet was posted on GHW2 forum by a previous owner, a link to that thread is included below.  Nice!  $1175

#G1009 German Gas Mask 
German WWI gas mask set in excellent condition.  This set was brought or mailed home by an American soldier who added a quirk about using it in cigar smoke filled bars.  The note is written on the reverse of the cardboard instruction at the bottom of the container which is often the missing.  Although excellent condition, we think the set was issued and used as the string on the front of the mask has been removed as seen in period photos (One could be easily re-added).  Most impressive is original straps for this gas mask set are in much better than average condition, these are almost always damaged or missing.  A really nice set for any collection!  $500
#G1003 M1895 Prussian EM/NCO Belt & Buckle Set
WWI M1895 Prussian EM/NCO belt and buckle set.  Early brown leather belt that was never blackened, it is uncommon to find surviving belts still in brown leather.  M1895 two-piece brass/nickel Prussian belt buckle.  The set appears to have been together forever and is exactly as received.  Nicely preserved set that would display well on its own or as part of an equipment/mannequin display.  $275

M1917 German Helmet with Factory Paint, Si 66
Excellent M1917 German helmet with factory paint, maker Si (Eisenhüttenwek Schlesien, Paruschowitz/ Oberschlesien) size 66.  Complete with the original chinstrap which is very uncommon to find on WWI German helmets.  The chinstrap is in excellent condition, the liner is fragile but also nice with some original liner string.  There is a 'GL' dome stamp still visible.  The helmet is named twice 'LENZEN II' once in what appears to be pencil or coloured pencil, and once in white paint. *Sold*
1914-1918 Heeresgruppe Krompr. Rupprecht von Bayern 1L Beer Stein
1914-1918 Heeresgruppe Krompr. Rupprecht von Bayern 1L Imperial German soldiers ceramic beer stein.  The 1L marking is dead centre indicating the stein itself is likely pre-1918 production. At some point it appears someone dropped the stein (They drank too much?) and then managed to very skillfully repair it.  The repair looks old, I'm not sure how it was done but it's solid and could still be used.  Neat and unique item for a display. *Sold*
