This restored M42 helmet is NS64 marked and bears a heating lot number that puts production in 1944. The helmet has been restored to look like it might have seen service in the winter campaigns of 1944 and 1945. The helmet was first painted rough textured factory field gray, and was stamped on the inside with the correct NS inspector’s ink stamp. The helmet was then over painted with a coat of white flat enamel. Helmets like this were worn with frequency by Heer and SS units during the Ardennes, as well as the siege Breslau in 1945. The helmet has been fit with an original rebuilt liner dated 1944. The leather is new, but aged to match the helmet. The chinstrap is a museum quality reproduction, and has been like wised aged to look and feel original.
Original winter camouflaged German helmets are extremely rare, and costly. Now you can have the next best thing for your collection at a fraction of the cost of an original.
