Mh68 Excellent Luftwaffe DD M35 Helmet

This is a nice clean example of a Q66 M35 Luft helmet, with original factory installed liner and strap (proper LBA marked, cordovan color strap). Great condition overall, with slight wear to the eagle lacquer, but not detracting. A great looking helmet for the Luftwaffe display. Sale includes my COA. SOLD 2300 USD

Mh66 Heer M42 Single Decal Combat Helmet

This is a well-used but very solid example of a CKL64 M42 Heer Single Decal combat helmet. This this helmet was brought back from the war and sat in a house since the war, untouched. The finish is about 80%, with the decal at a slightly higher percentage. The liner and strap are complete and show service use and appropriate age. Literally an untouched combat piece, very desirable condition and outstanding appearance. Sale includes my COA. SOLD 775 USD

Mh65 Beautiful Heer M35 DD Camo Helmet

This helmet is a Q66 Heer Double Decal M35, heat lot number 3494, with a size 59 single ply liner. The M40 Style strap appears untouched original to the helmet and likely was upgraded when the helmet was camo'd. The outside of the helmet is covered in a grey-green camo with wood chips and grit mixed in it, leaving the near 100% Quist eagle carefully exposed by painting around. The national colors shield is covered, but there is a small fleck of paint missing, showing red of the shield underneath. The camo finish is literally 98% intact. The liner is minty, as is the helmet's interior overall. The liner bears the name of the former owner. This one is a top shelf piece, near impossible to upgrade. Sale includes my COA. 3900 USD

mh18 Nice, Untouched Camo Paratrooper

This Camo FJ comes from a long time picker / collector who comes up with great items always. This helmet was brought back by a New Jersey GI who hung it in his restaurant for over 30 years, then decided to put it away. All parts are original untouched to the helmet and the camo and decal show strongly. Liner and strap show expected age and wear. Original Camo Paras are hard to come by and this one is a great example. Sale includes my COA. 7600 USD

Mh64 Fine Condition M42 'Landstorm' Helmet

These do not come up very often and I doubt that many are out there in collections. This M42 is an NS62 shell, side stamped, with a 1734 heat lot number. The finish is lighter texture schiefergrau. The consignor reports this came from an auction around 2014/15 and was listed as a logistics support helmet. It features a variant type shield which is a bordered "Wolfsangel" or wolf's hook, on a black shield. This insignia is often attributed to Dutch fascist organizations such as Landstorm Nederland, and Ludwig Baer's 'History of the German Steel Helmet' seems to bear this out. I have never owned one, but in hand this helmet has every appearance of pre-1945 manufacture and wear. (Additionally worth mentioning, NS is the sole known maker for another very unusual helmet type, the 'Sauerland' organization's helmet.) The liner shows a lot of use but is supple. There are no markings discernable. Sale includes my COA. 5950 USD

Mh63 Excellent Heer Camo M40 Named Helmet

This is a one-look, real camo Heer. The shell is a Q64 M40, with thick camo paint inside and out. The inner skirt grass green camo, plus the soldier's name, prevent a clear view of the heat lot number. The size 56 marked liner and strap are in combat worn, untouched shape. The outer shell is completely brush camo'd over the factory finish in a heavy layer of feldgrau, punctuated with grass green and yellow ochre. Any sign of decals is covered by the heavy camo finish, and there are thankfully no signs of "exporatory digs" for decals on this untouched piece. There are two minor shrapnel strikes to the rear of the helmet, showing it was definitely worn in a combat environment. Great looking camo! Sale includes my COA. 3650 USD

Mh62 Outstanding Fallschirmjaeger Double Decal Helmet

This excellent Double Decal M38 FJ helmet was purchased by the consigner from the Ruptured Duck in 2007 (comes with Ruptured Duck COA also). The helmet is an ET68, with heat lot number 926. The inside pads are correct and in the grey color, which is appropriate for this paint scheme, chinstrap configuration and lot number. The paint is a smooth texture feldgrau, not parade feldgrau of the first M38s. The shell has what appears to be three shrapnel or bullet nicks, but they are wartime and add character without detracting. The paint overall is over 90%, with the luft eagle and national colors shield being in the mid-90s percentile. The Spanner Bolts show very slight indication of being turned, but I honestly believe this is wartime done. The grey straps have the correct "PRYM" marked snaps, and the liner has the earlier style three line maker stamp (both stamps are clear) and the liner is light golden color with a stitching separation in the middle seam. This handsome, great condition example would grace any FJ collection. Sale includes my COA. 15K USD

Mh54 Handsome, Earlier M35 Heer Double Decal Helmet

This outstanding helmet is an early ET (64) production Heer, with heat lot number 2823. The dome date is 1936, as are the liner and strap dates. The parade feldgrau factory finish is the lighter pea green, and retains a bit of it's desirable 'chalky' look. The adler and national shield show graceful age tone and crackling, but are fine specimens. Just a beautiful Heer. Very nicely priced considering its beautiful look. Sale includes my COA. HOLD 4K USD

 

 

-
Mh61 Excellent Kriegsmarine Double Decal Helmet

This KM helmet is a sharp example in great condition overall, showing moderate use and wear. The shell is ET62 with a 4k series heat lot number indicating 1939 production. The helmet and liner are 39 dated; the strap is devoid of a maker or date. The paint is the classic ET "Apple Green" feldgrau of the 1939 production period. The decals are excellent and Real examples of Gold Pocher Kriegsmarine decals (note the correct raised edge highlighted in the eagle picture). The liner is excellent and all pins are untouched. It should not be overlooked that KM helmets are much rarer than most other varieties of TR helmets, due to the small size of the KM as a force / vs the fact they were a shipborne force and their requirement for this type of equipment was much smaller. A superb example with no issues. Sale includes my COA. HOLD for DH 6K USD

Mh57 Minty Luftwaffe Single Decal Helmet

This ET66 M42 single Luft is essentially stone mint inside and out, with the exception of something having been spilled on top while it was in storage for many decades, causing some rust bubbling to the top and right rear area. Decal is 100%, liner is mint, chinstrap is mint, paint is otherwise mint. Overall a super collectible piece in a size 58. Sale includes my COA. 1300 USD

Mh53 Handsome M35 Double Decal Luftwaffe Helmet- Update and Clarification

I initially catalogued this helmet as EF-- It is an SE66. In Brian Ice's excellent reference, this type of helmet, heat lot number 077, is on the list. (Picture is provided in this updated listing). The helmet conforms to the specs as laid out in Ice's Book: shell marked 077, the 1940 dated liner band is unreinforced (and in this case, steel, not aluminum), with square bales (we've seen this in EFs, haven't we?); ET style decals, etc, etc. The list shows a heer helmet same heat lot number right above this luft, with production completion post-March 1940. If you refer to the pictures above, you can see the liner retaining pins are dated 4 - 40 (plus the B&C band is dated 1940). Moreover, the dome stamp is a 1940 style "wehrmacht beschaffungsampt," with no date. The helmet is also a decent update of perhaps an additional specimen for reference along with Brian's book listing. The nice part is, the paint and decals are in outstanding condition, as are the liner and correct cordovan colored strap. Overall a handsome SE example, hard to upgrade. Sale includes my COA. HOLD for BM 2450 USD

Mh52 Beautiful Q M35 Double Decal Polizei Helmet

This outstanding helmet is a 1936 dated piece, inside and out. The Quist factory gloss feldgrau finish is visible, underneath a perfectly applied flat grey vehicle paint finish. The decals, including the early rounded Q Party Shield variety, were carefully masked. This gives the helmet a very cool look (a screamer in hand), suggesting possible use by a field veteran of the SchuPo (or SS Pol Div.?) It is named, and research is possible. The liner band is a 1936 dated single ply, with the embossed 1936 maker's mark in the leather (see picture). The strap is cut at each side, cleanly (the ends are crisp cut, with the same patina as the rest of the strap ends, indicating forced removal from a head perhaps?). Handsome polizei doubles like this one don't come along that often. Sale includes my COA. 2850 USD

Mh49 Q M35 Single Decal Heer Helmet

This helmet is one of the ones that shows period removal of the national colors per orders, during 1940. It is a very sharp condition Quist M35 with factory finish and classic Bigfoot Heer eagle. The right side shows where the national shield was carefully removed during the period, with the same patina uniformly across the area as with the rest of the sheld. The heat lot number is 218, and the liner is a 1938 double ply. There is an ink stamp "64" above the lot number. There is also a name and rank penciled in the rear skirt (see picture). The liner bears the size stamp 57, and the original issue chinstrap is slightly shortened. Overall a handsome looker in a not too common configuration. Sale includes my COA. HOLD 2400 USD

Mh45 Nice Sawdust Camo M35 Combat Helmet

This helmet is a nice example of an M35 reissue with full sawdust camo finish. The helmet is an SE64, with very good to excellent condition interior paint and liner. The liner shows the circular line on the tongues, from stacking on a gas mask can. The strap is in very good condition but has been separated and glued. The exterior of the helmet shows excellent, real sawdust camo at least 95% remaining. A rare finish type of camo combat helmet with a great display appeal. Sale includes my COA. 1400 USD

 

 

 

-
Mh46 Double Decal Heer EF M35

This helmet is a nice example of a well-used M35 made by EF. The shell is finished with the typical dark green feldgrau characteristic of EF M35s, with some patina to the paint. The decals show commensurate wear and use, and are 85-90% present. The liner shows some dryness and is size marked 57. The strap is an M40 likely period replacement (showing same leather wear and age as liner) and is a Singer Klattau '41. Overall a solid M35 that has seen a fair amount of action. Sale includes my COA. 2300 USD

mh40 Outstanding Kriegsmarine Shipboard Camo Helmet

This helmet is like several I have handled over the years that bear that very hard hand painted coat of ship paint. The pigment is brush-applied in a couple of layers on an M42 NS62 shell, with untouched original liner and '42 dated strap. The strap has the grey paint on it in places, visible in the pictures. The maker is difficult to determine, but the image is provided in closeup for you to see. The period photo supplied by the consignor shows a bin full of these helmets just below the sailors on shipboard in the photo. The top left helmet bears hand rendered insignia similar to this one. Due to the intricate nature of the emblems I am inclined to believe they represent a home port or home stadt, and are significant to the vessel the helmet sailed on. They are decidedly not GI art. For the KM collector, and intriguing Camo example. Sale includes my COA. 2850 USD

mh41 Combat Used M35 Q64 Heer Chickenwire Camo Helmet

This salty combat piece turned up in Northern Italy a few years ago at a used furniture shop. The consignor reports that the helmet was brought in to trade for a piece of used furniture by a local customer. The helmet, a desirable maker and size (Q64), shows heavy field use and wear, including scraped national shield and heavily worn Heer adler. The wire is correctly tucked into the liner band all around and itself is correct period wire. The wear from the wire against the paint is authentic, not contrived in any way. The liner was bled in heavily and basically disappeared over time. The name Daun is possible to research in existing German war cemetaries in Italy. A solid, original chickenwire camo for the combat collector. Sale includes my COA. 2850 USD

 

 

 

 

 

 

mh24 Rare! Luft Transitional Double Decal Helmet

Here is a not often seen Luft Transitional helmet circa 1937. All components are untouched original to the piece. The shell is a German M16, with a marking AW04 on the inside right skirt, and no other mark. The liner features a single ply band and is dated 1937. The liner is golden brown and appears to have a layer of beeswax or similar on it, but the liner is in fine shape nonetheless. The decals are the first style Luft and in 97% condition. The paint has some slight patina, mostly related to interaction between the steel and the paint. This handsome piece will be a top shelf item in an advanced Luftwaffe collection. Sale includes my COA. SOLD USD

 

 

 

mh13 Outstanding US Medic Grouping, ETO

Here is a super condition US medic's helmet, with an enlisted medical brass affixed to the liner. The helmet bears the original finish and is a front-seam shell with correct 11-row cotton web chinstraps. The original liner chinstrap is present and excellent, as is the OD#3 webbing inside the liner. Accompanying are a US WWII web belt, with original Kabar knife and a black canteen with a 1918 dated cover, all accompanying the helmet as brought back. This grouping is from a picker who recovered these and some German items from a vet estate cleanout. Sale includes my COA. 1050 USD

 

 

mh11 Camo Polizei Double Decal Combat Helmet

This NS64 M35 Police has seen at least two camouflage scenarios, one of them full whitewash. The outermost finish is a depot (possibly vehicle paint) flat field grey. The police and party shields still retain 90% or better. What makes this helmet interesting is the addition of a Czech M16 transitional chinstrap, usually seen on earlier transitional helmets. Definitely a field used helmet, either grenz, einsatz, or possibly SS-polizei-division. Sale includes my COA 1950 USD

 

 

 

 

 

mh3 Combat Heer Camo M40 Helmet

Here is a helmet that has been there. This is a decent tan camo with a hint of dark green, period sprayed onto an NS62 M40 Heer Single Heer. The eagle can just be seen at more than 75% intact under the tan paint. The liner and strap are un touched original to the piece, and overall the wear is moderate to heavy. This is as authentic as camos can get. Price includes my COA 3200 USD

mh4 82nd Airborne Parade Helmet

The consignor of this helemt, an advanced US helmet collector, reports that he obtained this helmet as part of a grouping from a WWII 82nd Airborne vet. The vet reportedly wore this helmet in the 1946 victory parade in NY City. There is no photographic documentation of this helmet in that context, but it does show signs of having been an early parade piece, worn for special occasions after the end of WWII. The outfitting, includes a refurbished rear seam steel pot, finished in a glossy Olive Drab, with carefuly hand-stenciled 82nd flashes, without the Airborne rocker. The steel pot straps are the ten-row OD number 7 color scheme. The liner has Rigger installed A straps, denoting a definite post-WWII look. I have done some cursory looking online at footage and stills, and have been unable to spot this configuration clearly among the imagery. The helmet is priced in accordance with being a decent parade or honor guard example from the post-wwii period. Price is 1500 USD
