Restored helmet #124

   

   

Whomever restored this helmet paid particular attention to the shade of paint and he did a great job. The shade of feldgrau and the matte appearance are as close as can be come to what I call "M34 feldgrau"; it's that shade of paint that you see on the earliest of M16 series helmets that were refurbished for Hitler's army just after the Reichswehr was dis-established prior to the creation of the Wehrmacht. The decals were applied with lacquer and lacquer coated after application; just as early transition helmets are. The shell is an ET64. The liner and strap are not the kind of reproductions that I carry but they are quite god nonetheless. $280.00SOLD

 

 

Restored helmet #115

       

This is an EF64 M35 shell which has been repainted in matte "feldblau" paint with early droop-tail decal applied. All components are reproduction other than the original helmet shell itself. $265.00

 

 

Restored helmet #119

   

   

This is a TJ66 original M16 helmet shell. It was re-painted to resemble an aged camouflage helmet. Looks like it was done 20 years ago. The liner is a reproduction that has a good amount of age to it as well. Overall it's a convincing job and displays very well. $325.00

 

 

Restored helmet #120

     

   

Here is a real blast from the past. This is one of the helmets that were offered by "Unique Imports" in the 1970s. They had imported about 10 thousand German helmets which had been re-used by the Norwegians after the war. They repainted the exterior and slapped on repro decals and sold them for $19.95. You were offered your choice of M35 or M42 models (Collectors had not yet coined the term "M40" yet) and you were offered your choice of Army, SS or Luftwaffe. This helmet is an ET64 M35 original German helmet shell with original German liner (dyed red by the Norwegians) and a Norwegian chinstrap. It still has the "unique Imports" blue paint and decals. I love these things and have a collection of them myself. $250.00

 

 

Restored helmet #114

       

  This is an original helmet SE64 M35 shell.  The helmet was re-used by the Norwegians after the war.  The liner and chinstrap are post-war Norwegian produced. The helmet shell has been repainted and adorned with reproduction Luftwaffe decals. Looks like the restoration was done in the 1970s-80s. There are spots where the paint has been touched up. $250.00

 

 

Restored helmet #110

   

   

 This is an original NS64 M40 shell restored as a factory issue with Luftwaffe feldblau textured paint. A reproduction decal was added and then the helmet was sprayed over in DAK sand paint. The inner skirt was covered and there is overspray on the liner frame. Just as often done originally. $255.00

 

 

Restored helmet #105

       

 This is an original Soviet Ssh36 helmet shell which has been restored with reproduction liner and strap; exactly replicating the early style cloth bowl liner. The helmet has been repainted and a red star stenciled on the front. A great representative piece. The size is about 59. $275.00

 

Restored helmet #97

   

   

Double decal combat police. Original ET68 shell. There is a tiny crack in the rim of the helmet shell near the weaers left. New paint and liner components. The decals are high quality lacquer transfer types. $350.00

 

 

 

Waffen SS helmet covers

     

This is the early type cover with no attached camouflage loops. It is made from cotton poplin material printed with an excellent rendition of "Oak-A" camouflage. The spring attached rocker hooks are also quite accurate. $29.00

 

     

This is the late war type cover with attached camouflage loops. It is made from cotton poplin material printed with an excellent rendition of "Oak-A" camouflage. The spring attached rocker hooks are also quite accurate. $29.00
