SOLD (pl) Outstanding Waffen-SS M40 Combat Helmet With a Normandy HistorySKU: Wsfs11
Here is a very historic Waffen-SS M40 helmet that has seen hard use and has a great history. The consignor reports “…this one comes out of the famous William Theffo collection from Normandy. Mr. Theffo picked it up a few years after the war in a bocage, upside down filled with water lying in the mud. Caen area.” I know that elements of “Kampgruppe Harzer” operated in the area around Caen, and this may well be one of those. Attached also is the page from the catalog of Theffo’s collection from 2013, confirming this was Theffo’s. A fine ET66 with classic ET runes, and the pictures tell the rest. A noteworthy addition to the best Normandy collection. COA accompanies.
