CUSTOM RESTORED WW2 GERMAN HELMETS
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 #88
Here is one of the nicer reproduction paratrooper helmets which I have seen. I
believe it is an older example. Not one of the current one's being offered on
ebay. Whomever did the paint job knew what he was doing. Nice texture and matte
appearance. Quality decal. The liner and strap have been very convincingly aged.
The cover also appears to be aged a bit. $250.00
Restored helmet #83
The last guy who bought this helmet paid $2200 for it. That is no joke> It is an
original M35 Q64 shell with new paint, new liner and strap. You can buy it for
Restored helmet #84
Here is an original M16 size 66 that was painted black with repro SS decals a
long long time ago. The liner is an original WW1 three-pad which is about half
intact. The helmet represents an early 30s SS transition.
Restored helmet #85
Anybody remember the old advertisements from Unique imports in the 1970s? You
could buy original WW2 German helmets for $19.95. They were helmets which had
been bought as surplus from Norway who had used them after the war. These
helmets were repainted in "unique imports green" and cheap Japanese-made decals
were applied. Well here is one of them. The liner is shot but you can still
display this helmet as a stroll down memory lane. It is an M42 ckl size 66.
Restored helmet #86
Here is another blast from our collecting past. An M40 ET64 which was painted in
"unique imports green" with a Japanese-made decal set. An original WW2 German
helmet in 1970s restored configuration. $200
Restored helmet #80
Here is an Si62 M18 that has been restored and repainted. It has the correct M18
liner and strap. The camouflage pattern is a good representaion of an original.
Restored helmet #81
This is an original Ckl66 shell with original liner, original strap and a new
camouflage paint job. Makes a great display for a fraction of one with original
paint. The parts are worth more than my asking price.
Restored helmet #73
This is an Original Pre-1945 German produced M42 helmet. Maker/size marked
Ckl66. It has been repainted in textured feld grau with a tan color camo applied
over that. A quality lacquer-applied Heer eagle transfer has been applied to it.
The liner and strap are from a 1950s-60s German border guard helmet and have a
nice aged look to them
Restored helmet #75
This is an original M35 helmet shell (ET62) with new paint and decals;
representing an Algemeine SS helmet. $225.00
