Killer Luftwaffe M42 Half-Basket Wire Camo Helmet


This is a correct, untouched wire half-basket Luft M42 helmet, shell ET 62, 2700 series lot number, single decal. The helmet shows service use and weathering, along with some age to the liner. The wire, a very correct gauge period component, is affixed by heavier gauge wire fixtures at the rear and scallops, plus a ‘woven’ seam along the top where it was rounded to fit the shape of the helmet. The interaction between the galvanized wire and the steel helmet shows the correct characteristics of white corrosion at the contact points– a true marriage of the basket to the helmet. The decal is worn but still is fairly complete and still shows a bit of detail. A nice combat display piece. COA accompanies.
