ON HOLD (cm) Outstanding Luftwaffe M42 Helmet

SKU: Mhjprlw42


Here is a very fine example of an M42 single decal Luftwaffe helmet by, I believe, NS. The reason I say that is the maker mark is completely invisible, so I have to go by the stretch of the shell and the design of the eagle. The shell stretch is likely NS, based on the ‘squareness’ of the dome and other factors. The eagle also resembles NS the closest, as far as I can see. The medium texture and medium tone of the schiefergrau paint also relates closest to NS. The heat lot number, #D249, can be double checked in the ICE reference (I checked and it falls in the NS production range. The Ice reference is very helpful in this regard). The shell size is 66 and the liner is marked size 58. The liner shows light wear and someĀ  age, and the chinstrap has a portion of the tip missing. Both are untouched original to the helmet. Overall this is a great example, and would be a top shelf luft M42 in a collection. COA accompanies.
