Two More Greats Have Passed Away; Bob Coleman, a superb, senior collector and friend, beloved by all who knew him. Also, Vince Coniglia, author of the book on US M3 knives and collaborator with Bill Walters on his recent knive volumes. Vince was a solid collector and friend to all.

Willi Schumacher, my friend and collecting colleague of 36 years has gone to join his wife Linda, who preceded him in death many years ago. He never had another love in this life-- except collecting and the friendships that brought. Willi's impact on the SS cloth collecting hobby will be forever remembered as positive and valuable. Willi was the 'real deal' and not some narcicist or interloper. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. RIP Willi.

Kelly Hicks, 50 Years Ago; 40 years ago; 30 years ago; 20 years ago; 16 years ago.

 Kelly Hicks has collected WWII artifacts for over 50 years and has written five original works and many contributions toward other books regarding the collecting of helmets of the German Wehrmacht and SS. His offerings in these pages include the sharing of important information regarding SS and other helmets, especially providing in-depth knowledge of the characteristics of original helmets and what to look for in the latest fakes. Armed with the right information, especially in today's collector market, collectors can make quality decisions about what they purchase, at the same time protect themselves from becoming victims of fraud.
 
In the "featured helmet of the month" section, collectors will find a complete write-up, including detailed photographs, of a particular helmet. There may also be period photos displaying the wearing of the helmet in its historical context.
 
In the "Authentications" section, a full range of authentication services is offered. Hundreds of collectors have taken advantage of this inexpensive way to maintain the value and investment potential of their original helmets, as well as obtain documentation for insurance purposes.
 
Lastly, collectors will find periodic listings of SS or other WWII helmets offered for sale. These helmets and other militaria are carefully vetted and guaranteed for life as original artifacts of the German Third Reich, the US Military, or otherwise as applicable. A COA from Kelly Hicks will accompany each purchase.
