This is a 100% original German WWII production M42 helmet. The helmet is Q64 marked and will fit a size 56 or 57 liner. The helmet was made in 1944. Quist marked M42s are extremely rare. For reasons that are still unclear Quist did not switch to producing M42 helmets when they were supposed to in late 1942. In 1944 they finally did start to produce a small number of M42s all in size 64, and this shell is one of them. The price includes a paint job, either field gray or blue-gray, splits, a liner and a chinstrap.
