The helmets in this block are a good mix of what collectors go for. I think most of us can spot a tanker helmet from far away and I bet back in the day that was true. It's kinda interesting how they don't really look like anything an aviator would wear or an infantryman.

The neat holster below is for a FN Browning Model 1922 pisto. Isn't it interesting that holsters seem to be something very unique to German collectors in the Hot Finds. I don't know but I can't remember featuring say an American sidearm holster but surely they didn't just keep them tucked in their pants.

What tends to happen in the WWII category is that people are fairly liberal in choosing which subcategory to list their item. So for example the Dutch uniform below is listed for sale in the United States category. No harm done I guess it's a matter of trying to find where the eyes are to get more bids.

My wife bought me a Hamilton watch one year for a present and not too long later I lost it at the fitness center (or did someone take it?). She still hasn't forgotten that and I've now been wearing Timex Wal-mart watches for the last decade. Still the idea has crossed my mind that it would be nice to get a quality Hamilton again. I'm not sure I want one as old as the one listed below but it's a good brand.
