    Neat mon. Where U find that? Those aren't easy to find at all.
    I'll give you 6 goats & 3 copper bracelets for it. Oops, I forgot the admin. policy(again).

    Thanks for looking BELLIN68, mrmajestic1, blunderbuss2, pw-collector. In answer to your question blunderbuss2, this one came from a small shop in Normandy, France, when I was out there looking round the area. I have never found any evidence they were used in actual combat, but given where I found it....perhaps?
    Now if I only had room for 6 goats.......

    Another fascinating helmet that I don't think I'd enjoy wearing! Was this fashioned of treated fabric?
  4. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 2 years ago
    OK, petey, I'll go 6 goats, 4 copper bracelets & a water buffalo. Hell, I'll throw in a hector of land if you don't ask where it is. The deed will be good! Guess I should add that the water buffalo is on the land but don't let that discourage you. The other 4 water buffaloes of my ex-herd have cleared out the U.S. butter-fly mines.

    I think you can guess why I like this one :)

    Thanks for looking mikielikesigns2, miKKoChristmas11, Dr_Rambow.
    miKKoChristmas11, yes appears to be a treated compressed fabric, very lightweight.
    Dr_Rambow, I did wonder if you would spot this one.

    @blunderbuss2, you might be getting the better of the trade, unless your sure the 4 from your ex-herd has found them all.

    I'm pretty sure the last 1 is OK & I got some locals to stomp all around to see if there were any more mines. That's the good news! bad news is the gov't has been overthrown again & I can't guarantee the title. I'll check but certainly not by personally going there. I don't know if they have a statute of limitations.
