€5,095.00

Second pattern, later war, stamped sheet steel construction, paratrooper helmet.

All four of the liner retention bolts are intact and consist of the later, solid, slotted aluminum type. The interior of the helmet has a M38 tan leather liner, which is fully intact with a central stitched seam, twelve circular ventilation holes and black rubber padding to the helmet band and the interior crown.

The liner is well marked with black inkstamped sizing, "Kopfweite Gr. 58 Stahlhaube Gr. 68" (Head size 58, {referring to the liner} Shell size 68). The lining also has additional RBNr black inkstamp.

The interior left side apron has the stamped manufacturers code and size "CKL 68", indicating manufacture by Eisen-und Hüttenwerke, AG Thale/Harz, size 68. The helmet comes complete with a blue/grey leather construction, dual "Y" pattern chin harness. On the front side there's a crack that make the appearance even more combat.

Still on it there's a piece of iron wire that once was all around the helmet for camouflage pourposes.

Great patina.

Nice and rare untouched combat helmet.
