SOLD (jk) Stunning M42 Later War Heer or SS Camo HelmetSKU: skurgr5
This beautiful camo comes from one of the most renowned camo collections. I am proud to offer it. The base helmet is a CKL64 M42, marked in the rear skirt, with a 4 thousand level hat lot number, suggesting post-June 1943 production. The liner and chinstrap are untouched original to the helmet, and the buckle end of the strap is missing. The finish is the typical CKL schiefergrau medium texture. The camo finish consists of three colors–the correct pinkish ordinance tan, grass green and brick red; applied in a vivid pattern from top down. Some additional pictures in direct sunlight have been added to show details of the dripping and crazing of the paint colors. The pattern they form is special–it resembles the SS Liebermuster camouflage pattern in a vague way. I’m not saying it is SS, but the camo pattern is unusual enough to bear mention. Priced as a beautiful heer camo, this extraordinary piece will find a central position on your camo helmet shelf. This helmet has previously been in the collection of RonR and Randy G; two very prominent collections. COA accompanies purchase.
