M40 Single decal SS helmet

Here is a near mint example of an M40 SS helmet. It is an Q 66 with 1940 dated components. In May of 1945 as turmoil erupted in Occupied Prague, this helmet was taken from an office in the SS/SD headquarters building outside the city by a 15 year-old boy. In 1993 this same fellow sold the helmet in answer to an advertisement in a local newspaper. Theoretically it could be one of the helmets in the above original photograph.

M35 Double decal SS helmet

As far as M35 SS helmets go; I believe this one ranks in the top 5 in the world. (I have only seen one or two others in this shape). It was issued to SS Ostuf Edmund Baumgartner after his graduation from Bad Tolz in 1938. He later became camp Kommandant of the SS strafflager at Dachau. Baumgartner had legal problems into the 1970s as a result of his SS service. He died in 1998..

M40 Luftwaffe “Normandy” camo

This is an M40 ET64 single decal Luftwaffe helmet. Painted over in spray with a three color camouflage pattern reminiscent of those found in Normandy. It has a loosely applied half-basket of medium mesh-size chicken wire. The painter had sprayed the helmet with a tan base-coat; including the inside rim. We can see the Luftwaffe eagle decal poking out from under the camouflage.

M35 3-color “Normandy” camouflage helmet

This one is a real work of art. Three colors applied over the exterior of an M35 helmet. The soldier was careful to leave the decal uncovered by the camouflage.

An M38 Camouflage paratrooper helmet

This one has the two-color textured camouflage pattern which is associated with the FJ6 in Normandy as several similar examples have been found with direct veteran provenance attributing them to Carantan just after D-day.

35 Chicken-wire camouflage helmet

This one has a look that I really dig. The wire attachment method is quite simple but must have taken some talent to achieve.

M18 helmet refurbished during 1935-36 period

The most typical “transition helmet” of  the early yers of the Wehrmacht; this is a WW1 vintage M18 helmet which was brush-painted over in M35 spec feldgrau paint. Heer decals were applied and an M31 liner was installed. The chinstrap is an M27 which was widely used until the M31 chinstraps became available after 1936.

K98 ZF.39 “Turret” sniper rifle 

This is not a helmet but you might find it entertaining anyway. It is an all matching BYF43 low turret sniper rifle captured by Lt. Col Preston Utterback; commanding officer of the 43rd reconnaissance squadron. The rifle was taken from the German sniper in a close-combat action on the outskirts of Buschdorf Germany in November 1944
