Today's issue of the WWII Hot Finds includes some surprises including great helmets, uniforms and a few auctions that will make you scratch your head. Enjoy!

I recently taught a lesson on the cold war and focused on the theory of "mutually assured destruction". A really cook artifact for that lesson is up for bids today - the A bomb pin. I don't know what that was made for but I could see some middle schoolers getting excited if you passed that around.

At first glance the mangled piece of metal in the pictures below looks like it was ripped off a crashed plane. This appears to be grip stick from an FW190. I'm surprised how well this battlefield souvenir is doing.

There are a couple of interesting head pieces in the bottom half of this newsletter. You can check out the 1930s era Italian helmet or to the left their is an Italian officers cap.

Since we are focusing on helmets take a look at the WWI era German helmet.  You don't see many of these listed on eBay.

With Memorial Day coming up I hope that all of you take a minute to remember those who fell serving their country.
