(Withdrawn) Outstanding, Mint Allgemeine-SS Black Transitional

SKU: ws9

(Withdrawn) This helmet originated from the late Robby Wilson collection; Robby having obtained it via Steve W. The helmet is a very early example of a transtional shell outfitted with an M31 liner, installed at the factory or depot. There is no field grey under the paint, only black, making this quite a rare example that was not obtained by the SS via contract means. The paint is 99%, the liner is minty and 1931 dated, with the original untouched strap. The decals are period applied CA Pochers, with some slight flaking to the bottom of the runic shield. The decals are placed in reverse order, which is not understood to this day as to the reason. Many SD organizatons display reverse decals, but this as a transitional piece lacks much archival connection to any organization within the SS. It may have been a preference of the maker at the time. At any rate, this puts it in a rarity category above the average transitiona. Beautiful helmet, a prize for any early collection. The consignor is motivated to sell and will accept payment plans. Price includes my 100% lifetime guarantee of authenticity
