DISCLAIMER:  I really don't like censoring but I also don't want to get in trouble somehow so I covered the swastika

I forgot I had these photos tucked away on my computer but I found it again and wanted to share here.  This is a souvenir from the Battle of the Bulge in Europe, WWII.  Its a trophy helmet Nazi Stahlhelm taken off a presumably killed or captured soldier and signed by some members of the 347th Infantry Regiment, 87th Infantry Division.  A Great uncle of mine had come into possession of the helmet from a close friend, I believe, who was part of the US Army regiment on the helmet and present at the battle.  This was a while ago but this uncle was visiting and he wanted to bring it to show because he knew my interest in history.
