Once again; I do not apply decals or paint camouflage helmets but every now and then I get some in which have already been "customized". Here are a few German ones which you might like

Restored helmet #64

        

Vintage 1976 Advertisement

Here is one which is a real blast from the past. In the 1970s, "Unique Imports" of Alexandria, Virginia bought a large load of original German WW2 helmets (all makes and models) from Norwegian army surplus. The Norwegians had used scavenged them up after the Germans surrendered and used about 80,000 of them for their post war army. They were stripped of all paint, then repainted with Norwegian brown/green and the liners were rebuilt. Unique imports repainted them in green, blue, black or tan to represent all branches of service and then added made-in-Japan decals.

Here isan example of one of them. It is an ET66 M40 original helmet shell with "Unique Imports" green paint and decals. The liner and strap are Norwegian. Decent shell with no cracks but has some pitting on the top.  $200.00

 

 

Restored helmet #59

       

Here is a way better than average restored Black M35 SS parade helmet as would be worn by Hitler's body guard or by SS troops at the Nuremburg rallies of the 30s. There are a ton of other neat applications for this one. The ET64 shell is original. The decals are quality lacquer transfers. Slightly aged. SOLD

 

 

Restored helmet #60

        

This M16 helmet has been repainted and very early reproduction decals applied. It seems like this one was restored long ago and with the intention of fooling collectors. The liner is an original aluminum framed type with good leather. $300.00

 

 

Restored helmet #61

       

This is a very well restored M16 finished to replicate an early Black allgemeine transition helmet. The WW1 era shell is original. All else is reproduction. SOLD

 

 

Restored helmet #62

        

Here is an original SE 64 M40 shell which has been restored as a Double decal police helmet. SOLD

 

 

Restored helmet #58

     

This is an original ET 62 M16 helmet which has been stripped and repainted in a very nicely matching feldgrau as used during WW. The liner and chinstrap are reproduction.  $220.00

 

 

Restored helmet #53

        

This helmet is a flawless original Q66 shell with a nice clear maker/size stamp at the side. It has been re-painted in a rough texture feldgrau and a high quality lacquer transfer decal has been applied. If you want an SS helmet; this is one you'll love.  SOLD

 

Restored helmet #54

       

 Here is an original size 68 M42 helmet which has been restored to represent a combat police helmet. Flawless shell, lacquer transfers, the whole works. SOLD

 

 

Restored helmet #55

        

 This NS 64 original helmet shell has been restored as a single decal Luftwaffe helmet. Whomever applied the decal did it in such a way to replicate the slight wing down-turn which is so usual on NS factory applications. This impressed me. Somebody was doing his homework when he re-finished this helmet. SOLD

 

 

Restored helmet #47

        

This is an original ET68 shell which has been re-painted with an excellent feldgrau matching originals quite nicely. The decal is a lacquer transfer which was made in Europe. New liner and chinstrap. $375.00

 

 

Restored helmet #48

        

Here is a size 66 M42 single decal Luftwaffe helmet with a new lacquer transfer decal. The paint is textured Luftwaffe feldblau. $275.00

Restored helmet #50

        

This SE66 helmet has been painted in textured feldgrau paint and a European repro lacquer transfer army decal has been added. The liner is unworn. SOLD

 

 

Restored helmet #51

       

This is an original EF68 shell which has been re-painted with an excellent feldgrau matching originals quite nicely. The paint has been scuffed a bit and really looks the part. The decal is a slightly gold-ish one which may pass well for a KM/Coastal artillery insignia.  New liner and chinstrap. $375.00ON HOLD

 

 

Restored helmet #28

        

Here is a snow camo Q66 M40 shell. Well aged, high quality reproduction liner and chinstrap. SOLD
