Show Time for Military Collectibles

By Peter Suciu

Renowned Japanese collector/dealer Eric Doody shows off a fantastic late war Japanese Type 90 steel helmet. This is one of the finest examples of this pattern of Japanese helmet seen at any show in recent memory.

A selection of American, French and even Dutch helmets was for sale from Advanced Guard Militaria.

Advanced Guard Militaria had on display the large Japanese naval flag (back) as well as this oversized American serviceman flag. Sadly the two gold stars denote that both soldiers (like brothers) were killed in the line of duty.

A selection of Imperial German headgear, including among these helmets (left to right, top to bottom) Prussian Dragoon Cavalry, Baden Infantry, Prussian Artillery, Jaegar Zu Pferde, Prussian Infantry, Prussian Infantry (tin war-time helmet), Prussian Heavy Cavalry (missing the spike) and Bavarian Infantry.

  1. Over 20 yrs ago I was thrilled to visit the home of Mrs. van Kirk..buying her husband book collection, 400 of his model planes etc. AND UNTIL RECENTLY, THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD!

    Now see with excitement a jolly happy senior sitting at a table on your site!

    I would be very happy to make contact with him. I have just retired from a 37 yr Out of Print Bookstore…and as my email suggest, I was a sgt. in the Womens Royal Air Force, hence my excitement when I bought some of his *estate*…

    Very plesaed to fall onto this site. regards all..I have 6,000 military books.
