with indiscernable heat lot #. The paint and patina make it impossible to read. The helmet is a one-glance original whitewash, bristle-brush applied, with most of the camo remaining despite
heavy service use. The luft eagle is mostly intact and very visible through the camo finish. The liner and strap are untouched original. The helmet
shows authentic, period wintertime use. A superb displayer. Sale includes my Lifetime COA.

This M42 camo is a collection in and of itself. The shell is a nice large ET68,
with a fine condition liner (with the two row gas mask can stacking mark around the inner circumference of the liner). The paint scheme is
an exquisite rendering of a water pattern camo (I say water, I have a sumpftarn FJ smock and this resembles it much closer than a splinter pattern
in my view). It features contrasts in the colors that give a three dimensionality to the pattern. The base layer of camo is a dark tan or yellow ochre, with lighter tan striations and green / brick red blotches. The striations are caused
by what appears to be mopping or scraping with a corrugated cloth or cardboard? surface, creating the small lines in tan and also in medium grey-green.
Truly an unusual and absolutely original period example, this unique paint scheme is about 90% intact. Striking, Original and in fine condition,
this camo would be a proud, satisfying addition to the most advanced camo helmet collection.

Mh98 Luftwaffe M40 Helmet
This example is a pretty decent EF66 M40, with medium texture blue-grey finish
and strong eagle. The overall finish shows service use and patina, and the liner shows service wear and effects of age.
Strap is only partially present. Sale includes my Lifetime COA.
Mh99 Very Nice Luft Camo M40 Helmet
This excellent luft camo could be mediterranean, or normandy, but with heavy
emphasis on the use of tan. The shell is an earlier M35 Q66 #287, with original liner and strap showing substantial service use. The helmet is camouflaged
in a glossy feldgrau, with ordinance tan sworls, creating a two color camo scheme. (As for the white overspray sprinkles, those appear to be period, not grandpa's garage).
Decals are not visible due to the thickness of the paint. A great original camo example! Sale includes my Lifetime COA.
Mh100 Luft M35 Double Decal Helmet
This helmet is a consignment piece with interesting markings. The shell is an ET64 number 3351. The liner is a single ply, 1937 date, untouched and absolutely original to the helmet. The 1939 dated
chinstrap is also the original one to this helmet. The finish is the waxy - glossy Luftwaffe blue-grey, with moderate wear. The decals feature the early droop tail
eagle and national shield, both in very good condition. The name and fighter squadron stamp inside the liner provide some potential traceability to the
former wearer. An image of a possible connection from later in the war, and advancement in rank, is provided. An overall nice Luft, with a great look.

Mh102 Outstanding Combat Used Heer Camo Helmet, ex-Wire!
This combat camo has a lot of great features. It is an SE64 M35, circa 1937 because
of the single ply liner band components. The helmet was given a wire basket first, then camo'd in tan, and then daubs of green in the chicken wire
spaces. The wire was removed likely in the period, because the patina is uniform and suggests wear in service after the wire. Killer example of a Heer
camo that would be great in any collection. Sale includes my Lifetime COA.
Mh103 Killer 3 Color CKL64 M42 Camo Helmet
I am proud to offer another excellent Heer camo, a CKL64, with a strongly intact
three color camouflage scheme. The base color is ordinance tan, with brick red integrated alongside the dark feldgrau of the helmet. The scheme is a fairly classic Normandy style.

Mh65 Beautiful Heer M35 DD Wood Chip 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 'Big Foot' 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, showing only light service use. The liner bears the name of the former owner.
A beautiful wood chip camo! Sale includes my Lifetime COA.
Mh94 M35 Double Decal Polizei Helmet
Here is a fine example of a double decal NS66 M35 Polizei, with the
darker feldgrau parade finish and unbordered Polizei and NS style party shields. The finish shows moderate service use, with some wear
to the party shield and a scuff to the police shield. The liner and strap are 1938 dated original to the helmet and in fine condition. The liner is
named. The inner dome bears the Abgenommen IV 1938 procurement stamp. Nice piece overall! Sale includes my Lifetime COA.

Mh95 Service Used Luftwaffe Early M40 Helmet
This is a decent, used example of an earlier production
ET M40 Luftwaffe Helmet. The shell is ET64, heat lot 258--early mid 1940 or so. While it has the steel single ply M40 liner band and suspension system,
it features unaltered smooth finish 1939 style liner retaining rivets. The finish is a fine texture luftwaffe blue-grey, with wear commensurate to daily field use.
The the adler shows scuffs and wear but is 75-80% present. The liner is light golden, with some wear. The strap is complete and features an earler aluminum style buckle.
Sale includes my Lifetime COA.
Mh92 Luftwaffe Three Color Camo M35 Helmet
This helmet is a three color camo Luft M35, size 57 marked liner. The maker and codes are mostly
obliterated by the reissue paint surface inside the skirt. The helmet features a single Luftwaffe eagle painted around in a subtle brick color, then sprayed in large green circles with
ordinance tan color circles in the middle of those. It's a unique camo pattern and 100% original. Sale includes my Lifetime COA.
Mh91 Kriegsmarine M40 Helmet
This helmet is an ET64, heat lot #526. The finish is ET light texture schiefergrau, with greenish rivets and a gold
Adler decal. The Ice book shows two M40 ET64 KM helmets at Lot #530. My assessment, and the consensus of probably the world expert on these, is that it is in fact a KM
helmet. Liner and strap are original to the helmet and overall it is in very good to excellent condition. ET KM M40 helmets are not growing on trees.
Sale includes my Lifetime COA.
Mh90 Excellent No Decal Heer M42 Helmet
This helmet was issued and only moderately service used, being produced late enough in the war to have not
received a decal. The assumption is it is Heer. The components are all untouched original to the helmet, and the liner bears the name 'Goss' and an emblem that
is possibly the 3rd Infantry division. A sharp looking helmet. Sale includes my Lifetime COA.
Mh88 Minty NS64 Luftwaffe Single Decal M42 Helmet
This M42 is near mint, size 57 example of a Luftwaffe M42 produced by Nickelwerke Schwerte,
NS. The Luft Adler is in excellent condition, and the liner and G.Scheile Loburgh 1942 chinstrap are untouched original to the helmet and also in excellent condition.
A super collectible example with light service use and only the slightest hint of being 76 years old. Sale includes my Lifetime COA.

Mh86 Heer M42 Single Decal Helmet

Mh89 Heer Camo M40 Combat Helmet FPnr. to a Panzergrenadier
This helmet is an NS64, heat lot number 1546. The rough texture schiefergrau factory finish
and NS Adler Heer decal are covered by a discernable camouflage scheme of tans and greens. The condition overall is very good, showing medium service wear
but in solid serviceable condition throughout. The liner and strap are the untouched originals installed at time of manufacture. The partial heer decal peeks out from beneath
the camo finish. The inner skirt has the German's name, rank and Feldpostnummer. Here is the data from a friend's research:
(1.10.1940-27.2.1941) Stab Feldersatz-Bataillon 9. Panzer-Division
(28.2.1941-29.7.1941) Stab Feldersatz-Bataillon 60 der 9.
(8.9.1942-11.3.1943) Stab I u. 1.-4. Kompanie
(23.4.1944-24.11.1944) 18.11.1944 gestrichen.
A nice, collectible Heer camo. Sale includes my COA.
Mh80 Sharp Luftwaffe M35 Double Decal Helmet
This is an excellent Quist size 64 DD Luft, with excellent paint and decals.
The eagle is 98%, but the national colors has a scuff on it, otherwise very good. The liner and strap are original to the helmet and in excellent condition.
Nice lufts are getting harder to find, and a Q is a great one for the collection. The Sale includes my Lifetime COA.
Mh79 Kriegsmarine EF64 M42 Helmet
This M42 is the textbook EF type with strong, correct KM adler decal. The finish is the medium texture
EF schiefergrau finish, with dark brown liner that appears to have been treated, not recently. It is intact, not oily, but darker brown. The liner tongue and
inner skirt are inscribed with the sailor's name. The chinstrap is not
present. Interestingly, the helmet is double stamped EF64/EF64. In hand, this is a sharp example of a KM helmet, very collectible. Sale includes my Lifetime COA.
HOLD 1450 USD
Mh75 Luftwaffe M42 Helmet
This helmet is a pretty classic ET66 of early to mid 1943 production. The finish is the
medium texture luftwaffe blue-grey, with factory applied Luft adler. The liner is original to the helmet and in excellent condition. The strap is a filler repro, put
on for display. Pictures show the condition, markings, etc. Great size, nice collectible helmet. The Sale includes my COA.
Mh76 Heer M40 Combat Helmet
This M40 single decal is made by ET in size 64 shell. The outer finish is very good medium
texture ET schiefergrau, with a patina spot to the right rear of the shell. The Heer adler is in very good to excellent condition. The interior shows a heavily used,
dry liner, in poor condition. The helmet is from an antique shop in Queens, NY, just several weeks ago. Never in a collection. The Sale includes my COA.
Mh78 Luftwaffe M42 Helmet
This M42 is a size 57, heat lot number 192.
The finish is a smoother texture Luft blue-grey, with a deep yellow toned eagle (most likely lacquer interaction over time). The liner and strap
are original to the helmet and are in very good plus condition overall. Nice helmet, no issues, great collectible. The Sale includes my COA.
Mh73 Outstanding Luftwaffe Double Decal M35 DAK/Tropical Helmet
These do not come along very often, and this example is a beautiful ET68
Luft that is a one-look original from top to bottom. The tan finish is a strong 90% on top of the ET luft bluegrey finish. The adler is painted around
and the national shield is covered by the camo finish. Liner and strap are original untouched to the helmet. More words aren't necessary to describe this screamer. Sale includes my COA.
SOLD 4K 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.
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.
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.

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.
SOLD 6K USD
Mh52 Sharp Early 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
