Updated 21 July 2014. New Polizei and Transitional Helmets
M35 ET66 Polizei Double Decal Helmet.
Available for sale is a solid example of an M35 ET-produced Polizei double decal in field-used condition. Paint, decals, liner and all components are in good to very good condition
showing substantial use, which for one of these might suggest anti-partisan or other combat related Polizei functions. The Polizei were all throughout the Third Reich's final solution infrastructure, from urban operations to
einsatzgruppen, to ghetto police, to SS-Polizei-Division operations. By its appearance, this would be one that could have been used in one of the latter three categories. Liner band is an early reinforced type, dated 1937. Decent size, pictures tell the rest.
Priced reasonably at 1900 HOLD USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
Rare Ear Cutout Transitional Helmet.
For sale is a seldom encountered original example of an ET64 Model 1918 German helmet, refurbished and used during
the inter-war and early WWII period. The helmet shows three layers of paint, the oldest being the original WWI finish, followed by the mid-1930s field grey, then finally the
M-40 style schiefergrau finish of WWII. The helmet displays no decals, likely due to them being removed during refurbishment. The liner is the typical M40 style which would be expected
in accompanyment with this WWII finish--although it is outfitted with a commercial style roller buckle chinstrap that is riveted in place. Ear cutouts are so commonly faked that it is refreshing to
encounter an unquestioned original example such as this. The helmet is priced at SOLD USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
Luft Quist 64 M40 Single Decal Helmet.
This is a combat used M40 luft helmet in strong 90% condition overall. It shows the typical paint weathering and liner darkening that you
expect to see on helmets worn out in the elements for extended periods of time. The liner may have been treated long ago, but the look and feel is certainly nice, and the leather
is relatively strong and supple. The pins are tight, untouched and the chinstrap, missing tip, is no doubt the original issued with the helmet.
This is a decent combat veteran, Priced reasonably at 1050 USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
Luft Quist M40 Single Decal Helmet.
This helmet has a strong 97% Quist medium texture bluegrey finish with about 93% Luft eagle. Shell is a 64 and the untouched
liner bears the name "Krenkel." The pins are tight and the chinstrap fully appears to be the original issued with the helmet. This is a nice, collectible helmet, Priced reasonably at 1250 USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
M-40 Heer Camo Helmet
This is a very good example of an NS64 M40 Heer camo, with tan and brown sprayed patterns reminiscent of an Italy or southern Russia
camo scheme. The Heer eagle shield is slightly visible under the paint. All components conform with untouched originality to the helmet, with tight pins and commensurate wear overall. The name, rank and feldost number also
show all signs of age and originality to the helmet. Overall a cool piece that will make a great combat display in any collection. Priced at 2750 USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
M-42 Kriegsmarine Helmet
For sale is an excellent example of an EF62 M42 Kriegsmarine helmet, with bordered KM eagle and medium texture EF schiefergrau
factory finish. The size 54 liner and strap are original to the helmet and all pins etc are tight and untouched. Decent example from a 40 year collection. Priced at 1850 USD HOLD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
M-35 Double Decal Luft Helmet
Large Size Q68 in very good complete condition with medium wear and age overall. The suspension is untouched with tight rivets with all washers,
Aluminum reinforced liner band with supple undamaged leather liner and full length chinstrap set. This is a nice, named example, priced at 2450 USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
M-42 Combat Heer
This is a very nice condition Battle worn M-42 Heer Single Decal ET62 batch number 1575.
The Field Gray combat paint has a hint of grit texture but is pretty smooth overall. The paint shows light wear with several smaller areas of bare, toned metal as seen in the pictures. The top of the dome is still covered leading me to surmise the worn spots are from repeated contact when the soldier carried his helmet slung in his preferred spot among his gear.
The liner is still light color; fairly soft and flexible, showing only minor normal signs of daily combat use. It still has the string, which looks like it belongs on this helmet as well.
The Leather chinstrap is in the same well used condition and shows wear and age commensurate with the helmet. It very likely original to the helmet. This helmet is priced at New Price 1200 USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
M-35 Field Repaint
For sale is an excellent condition field repaint SE60 M35 with a 1937 dated liner band, original factory installed liner, with some of the reissue paint globbed onto it. The
strap assembly appears to be a later war replacement set (possibly done at the time of the repaint). A great looking helmet for the combat collector priced at USD 1800 and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
M-35 Sicily Capture Heer Camo Helmet
The camo helmet and accompanying items pictured came among the estate of a US Army Veteran in 1990.
There are German items obviously torn off of uniforms, German pictures some US Insignias and medals. The helmet consists of an ET64 M40 with ET factory finish and a tan / green camo finish. The liner and strap are
untouched original to the piece, and some of the interior tan camo is visible on the strap itself, denoting the untouched nature--these components have always been together. The collector who got the grouping from the
vet estate was handed everything wrapped up in the US Army wool shirt. The collector was told by the relative that this helmet was acquired by the vet on the battlefield on July 13 1943 by the Acate River Bridge. (about 3 KM Inland
from the beach/coast), after overcoming resistance from emplacements left to defend that bridge. Everything the vet kept as souvenirs of his time in WWII--extra patches, shoulder boards, medals, miscellaneous German pictures was thrown into the pile,
and creates an interesting account of his time at the front. This is a nice, historic vet grouping for 3k USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
M-35 Waffen-SS Q66 Double Decal
This helmet has seen a lot of hard use during the WWII period, but remains in relatively handsome condition considering
the wear. The paint and decals are at 70% overall, and the liner and chinstrap components are in great shape with no abuse damage and all pins tight, etc. The liner band is a 1938 date
Schuberthwerke and the chinstrap is a Carl Tesch 1938. My experience tells me this chinstrap probably also had the VA SS 1938 ink stamp on it, as all '38 Tesch examples on SS helmets I've seen bear this
marking or faint remnants thereof. Another aspect of note is the 1151 batch number. This is only the second field grey version I have seen in this batch number; all the others were repainted black. There are
certainly more than two out there, but the number that escaped being painted black in the SS unit seems to be very few. This helmet's overall condition necessitates a fair price, which is 9.7k USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
M-38 Early Spanner Single Decal Para
For sale is a decent, complete and un-messed-with example a single decal paratrooper helmet. The finish and decal rate about 80% overall, with a decent representative Luft eagle. The bolts appear unmolested and the liner, pads and
straps are in very good serviceable condition. The size is 56, with ET68 shell. All in all a nice example of an earlier para. Price is 7.8k USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
Allgemeine-SS 'Himmler' Helmet, Named
This is an early example of an Allgemeine-SS helmet, circa 1933, consisting of the commercially produced style made famous by Himmler.
The helmet never was adorned with decals. The exterior shows storage wear and some rumpling to the top, with about 84% satin black finish remaining. The liner is the first model 3 pad type,
showing some dry damage and is marked and named nicely. The person this was issued to is possibly this individual (possibly, not definitive): Schulze, Wilhelm Ostubaf. 3. 6.10 48 385 Kdr.Pz.GR.22 9.44 † 2. 9.44
Hstuf. Potsdam Kdr.II./T.I.R.1 10.41 b.Albert
Ustuf. II./Sta."Germania" 9.35 This helmet's overall condition necessitates a fair price, which is 3.5k USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
M-40 Single Decal Heer
For sale is an M-40 Q64 helmet with Quist schiefergrau finish and 'bigfoot' Quist decal. The batch numnber is
475. The chinstrap is dated 1941 and looks orig to the piece. The helmet features a beautiful named blond liner that is not damaged and is untouched.

This helmet is priced at 1550 USD SOLD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
For sale is a helmet that is rarely offered anywhere; a Luftwaffe Transitional. The helmet comes from a 40 year collection and has
not been touched in any way. The multiple layers of paint and medium - heavy use denote how difficult supplies were for the German armed forces during the early stages of the
re-armament period. They used and re-used everything available in the early stages. The helmet features a luft blue-grey outer finish with very good eagle and national shield.
The liner and strap are the M-31 type, doubtless added during the many re-issues this helmet has seen. For the advanced luft collection. Price is 3900 USD and comes with my lifetime guarantee
