Garage Saler Extraordinaire E. Larry strikes again with another super find. This one is a great example of the rare US WWI experimental #8 steel trench helmet. It's 100% original and untouched. The correct finish is excellent. The liner is very good and only showing age where the leather pads are folded over the steel rim. The chinstrap is also excellent. I have seen there priced in the $6000+ range I think my price is very realistic and reasonable. It looks great, and will really be the center piece of your WWI headgear collection.
This is a good solid example. It shows age and the handle is very slightly cracked, but still very sound. The blade was sharpened, but fits well into the excellent solid scabbard. It will display very well in your collection.
This is a very good original example with the correct original red paint. It shows honest age, but has no issues or problems. These have become hard to find, so don't miss it!
This came out of the Royal Oak, Michigan flea market last summer. It is a nice looking US WWI experimental Liberty Bell steel helmet. The original green finish is excellent. The liner is gone, but about 3/4 of the original strap is still there. It displays very well, and is priced right.
This is a really hard one to find. It's a unfinished example probably brought home from the factory as a souvenir. These are really hard to find, so don't miss it.
This is a very nice untouched example! It has a nice even patina overall with a great tight handle. The blade is very good with the original polish & factory edge. The LF&C marked scabbard is excellent and tight with solid prongs. The knife is a perfect fit in the scabbard, and has never been cleaned, worked on or played with. It is a very solid nice example.
This is a very solid used untouched example It has a nice even patina overall with a great tight handle. The blade is good showing old sharpening and use. The scabbard is excellent but missing one prong, which is typical. The knife is a perfect fit in the scabbard, and has never been cleaned, worked on or played with. It is a very solid nice example.
This is a really attractive example of the A C CO. 1917 Trench knife. This maker is much more rare than the LF&C version. The blade is great as is the handle. The guard is nicely marked and also in great condition. It has never been cleaned, and still has a very light bit of surface dirt mixed with rust. A quick clean up with oil and some OO steel wool would make it look really nice. The scabbard is very solid with only a loose rivet @ the bottom.
This is a nice original example. The finish is very good with only some light surface rust and age. The handle has no issues. The scabbard is solid without problems. Overall, it's a good looking piece for your collection.
This is a nice original example. It has very good finish. The fuse and spoon are also very good. It has everything except the "bang". The body has a few holes drilled in it, but it really does not detract. These are hard to find, so don't miss it.
