Item 584  M42 Single decal army helmet

A very straight, clean and honest example of the quintessential German combat helmet; the M42 single decal army. This one is a fairly early produced example with the maker marking ET66 at the side. The exterior paint rates at 99% and remains very matte in appearance; not being effected by patina and handling wear. The army decal is a textbook ET factory application and retains excellent detail. The liner shows only light wear and has it’s original drawstring in place. The chinstrap is excellent and solid with a 1942 date. You’ll not find one much better. $1900.00

Item 582  M39 Soviet army helmet, 1941

This is a great looking Ssh39 Red army helmet. It has 97% of it’s original green paint and an intact cloth bowl shape liner. Correct riveted chinstraps. The shell size is indicated as 2A which would accomodate a size 58 liner. THe liner is marked ’58’. Maker marked (ЛM3 – 41) at the rear which are the cryllic characters for LMZ – 41 (Lysvinskiy Metallicheskiy Zavod 1941). If you look closley at the front underneath the right lighting, you can see the outline of a red star insignia that once was there. I have thried to show it in one of the photos. Overall; a very good example. $885.00

Item 581  M35 Luftwaffe sand camouflage helmet

This is an ET66 M3 double decal Luftwaffe helmet. The exterior has been coated in a sand finish. I am not sure what is the bonding agent; be it cement of simply paint. But the finish has two very subtle colors; green and tan. The decals which would have been factory applied are totally obscured by the sand textured finish. The interior shows a good amount of wear. The steel lot number dates the shell to 1939 production. The re-enforced aluminum liner frame is marked and dated 1939. The chinstrap is L.B.A. marked and dated 1938. $1950.00

Item 580 Type 30 Japanese combat Helmet

This is an astonishing example. The helmet is a 1941 produced (Dated Showa 16 on the front inside liner pad) helmet with 98% of it’s original factory paint. Being a 1941 produced helmet; it was made before they started adding the painted band around the exterior which re-enforced the paint coating of the star and split-pin heads. One of the split-pin heads has broken off of the prongs but the prongs are still held firmly in place. The inside of the helmet shows the pig-skin liner which is fully intact and sound. The chinstraps are full-length and have the correct finished ends. There is a painted size marking (Large) on the rear as well as a painted name )and a printed name tag bearing the same name) The helmet is ID’d to a Major Hayashi. The cover is a post 1940 type with the re-enforcement tape around the rim. The wool disc at the front bears a metal officer star. The wool disc is slightly smaller than EM types which I have seen and it is factory sewn to the outer cotton material layer of the cover.  This is the first time I have ever had a Japanese helmet which was ID’d to an officer and the first one I have seen with an officer cover. $2800.00

Item 579  Type 30 Japanese combat helmet

This is an example of the very last stage production of the Type 30 Combat helmet. Most likely meant for soldiers intended fr the defense of the home islands in 1945. The helmet shell is a standard type 30 with factory stamped marking at the rear. It bears a standard steel army star insignia at the front and is overall painted in a slightly glossy but standard brown-drab. The liner is a simplified production 4-section cloth liner with a light-weight cloth chinstrap which still utilized the three-point connection associated with the earlier army chinstrap set-ups. Helmets of this type have often been thought to be for civilian use due to the light-weight liner system which resembles civil helmets of the period. The fact that this helmet is a type 30 shell and bears an army star essentially indicates it beyond doubt; to be a military issue helmet. $650.00

Item 578  M42 Single decal Luftwaffe helmet

This is an ET62 M42 helmet with 95% of it’s wartime texture paint. The typical ET style Luftwaffe eagle decal rates at 97%. The liner shows only light use. The chinstrap appears by all indications to be original t the helmet. It is maker marked by O.Reichel; which was a known Luftwaffe contractor. As shown in the photos, there is a tear on one edge of the chinstrap but it will hold up for standard display. Overall a helmet with a very good, honest appearance. $775.00

 

Item 577  M40 Waffen SS  helmet

 

This is an M40 SS helmet with a lot of character. Just right for the collector who doesn’t want his helmets in new condition but wants them to look nice anyway. The exterior paint remains at 90% and shows very good and even wear all the way around. The factory applied ET style decal is outstanding; showing commensurate wear but remaining clear with no details obscured. The leather shows a good amount of wear but no damage. Overall it is a helmet that has been used but not abused. I do not know the reason for the “168” which is painted at the rear; other than it possibly being a stammrolle number; The soldiers role number within the company. The helmet is an ET66. ON HOLD

Item 550  M40 single decal Waffen SS helmet 

Here is an example of one of the most honest SS helmets I have ever seen. It is a textbook early M40 produced with a 200 series number in ETs second sequence of steel lot accountability numbers. This indicates a likely production time frame of mid 1940. The decal is a standard ET that has very even patina and just a few nicks added to the surface wear. The slightly textured finish displays overall and even wear with some paint loss at the dome. The liner shows moderate wear and the chinstrap appears that it could be original to the helmet. Overall a great example that could have seen use anywhere from Barbarossa to Normandy. ON HOLD

 

 Item 548  M40 single decal Waffen SS helmet 

 

Here is an ET64  M40 waffen SS helmet of fairly early production. The steel lot number is 406 and there is a number 4 just above it. The number 4 is a mystery as to why it is there. I’ve run across several examples over the years where there is a random single digit added above a steel lot number and I have never heard a reasonable explanation for it. The decal is a textbook ET factory applied type which is outstanding in condition and clarity. The helmet paint has very light texture which is typical of early ET M40s. The leather of the liner shows moderate wear and age. The chinstrap (unmarked) appears by all indications; top be original to thye helmet. A striking example in all regards. SOLD

 Item 547  M42 single decal Waffen SS helmet 

This is an EF M42 helmet with a factory applied ET type decal (by 1942 EF was using ET decals on about 40-50% of their SS helmets so this is a correct and typical combination) The decal rates 95% with just a chunk taken out of the upper left. Overall the decal matches the condition of the helmet very well and this is a “well balanced” piece. The liner shows light wear. The drawstring has been removed and tucked up behind the liner fr some reason. The string shows good wear and is unraveled in part. The chinstrap appears to be original to the helmet. The paint is very typical light texture EF style application. This one has a great amount of shelf-appeal. SOLD

 Item 546  M42 single decal Waffen SS helmet 

This is an M42 EF66 single decal SS helmet which is of fairly late production with the maker mark having been moved to the rear (most likely in the spring of 1943) The decal is a great example of the EF “House decal” adopted by EF in 1941 and used on about 50-60% of their helmets during the period until decal application halted in the summer of 1943. The helmet has seen a good amount of wear; the liner being worn but intact. The chinstrap appears by all indications; to be original to the helmet. This one has a real “Just out of the attic” look to it. SOLD

 Item 501 M42 Waffen SS helmet

Here is a mid-war M42 Waffen SS helmet by Ckl in shell size 66. The 3100 steel lot number dates the production of this helmet to the summer of 1943. The wartime textured paint remains 95% intact while the runic decal rates at about 97%. There is a readable ET/Ckl style acceptance stamp inside the dome. The liner shows only moderate wear and has the name of the former owner/wearer handwritten onto the leather. Overall it is a great display helmet in wonderful shape and well-balanced as far as component condition. $7000.00    SOLD
