Grass Camo Heer Combat Helmet

 

This helmet comes from a Vet estate in Upstate New York, USA and is fresh out of the woodwork. This one is an eye catcher of a camo in its own right, and has the additional rarity factor of having been an RAD helmet once in its life. The helmet is an ET 64 M40 with a batch number that looks like 1425, so a likely 1941 product. There was an RAD decal on the right side, and the scraped area is visible and partially covered with camo. These helmets existed and were worn by units that formed part of the combat formations of the Heer, and even contributed soldiers to the Waffen-SS as well. The camo is a strong 80% and is mixed with chopped grass or possibly pine needles. The chinstrap is maker marked and also is covered with a lot of camo daubing--absolutely original to this piece. A super camo with lots of character and has not been in a collection...yet. Price, including my COA, is New Price! 2600 USD.

Excellent M34 Police Helmet

This police M34 bears decals that are in the SS configuration. This is a scarcer arrangement for these decals and may indicate einsatzkommando use.

Heer M35 Reissue Combat Helmet

 

This EF62 is a nice example of a later issue M35 that has an M40 style paint job, M40 liner band but with squared corner chinstrap bales; smooth liner retaining rivets painted around, and the Heer eagle carefully painted around. Nice example of a circa 1940 EF issue. The liner is ok, but the chinstrap has disappeared, leaving only the attachment loops on the bales. Nice helmet for a combat display. Price, including my COA, is SOLD USD.

Schutzpolizei / Anti-partisan Camo DD Combat Helmet

 

This helmet is a large size police double decal camo, with lots of field wear, and then harsh wear to the inside since the war. The display appeal is still there, and in my view the configuration of this one points to a police or anti-partisan duty including combat. Price is reasonable considering the historic nature and rarity of this consignment piece 2800 USD.

Heer Transitional Double Decal Helmet, Early Reissue

 

This helmet comes from a pretty capable picker who finds them in family estates and yard sales throughout the Northeast. This helmet is a German M16 shell with a Nazi period feldgrau finish, with rough texture schifergrau finish applied without converting the liner. The original layer of decals were covered, and the reissue saw the heer shield applied only. Within that same period, from what I can see, the national colors were hand-rendered so the helmet would bear two decorations--I do not assess the hand applied national shield to be postwar. The early style chinstrap is in nicer condition than the liner and may have been added. The two key aspects I note of it being an early reissue are the size 56 marking in the rear skirt--plus the non-updating of the liner. Priced reasonably according to condition. Priced accordingly 750 USD.

Excellent Kriegsmarine Double Decal M35 Helmet

 

Here is a great example of a used but beautiful condition ET62 KM M35 with classic bordered KM eagle and national shield. The helmet has the typical 1939 thin paint finish in about 97%, that shows the slight, brownish patina of the underlying metal, just detectable at the crown area. I find this on ET Heer and SS helmets from the period, mainly on KM ones, possibly due to their proximity to the sea, in coastal batteries or even on shipboard. So for me, a classic feature. The decals are perfect examples of KM and are factory glue and lacquer applied. There is some fading from light abrasion to the national shield. The liner is tight and untouched, and the strap, an M40 pattern, appears to be in commensurate condition to the helmet and is possibly a wartime replacement? with an unusual 3 letter code (CGY) to the strap end. Overall this is a great collectible example of a KM helmet that is missing from many collections. Excellent Price, including my COA, is NEW PRICE 6200 USD.

Luftwaffe M42 SD NS66 batch nr D315

This helmet features a strong 97% of the rough textured Luft blue- grey paint. There are just some scuffs and a bit of white paint at the top. The adler is a very strong 99%. The size stamped 59 liner with drawstring looks like it has never been on a head, it is lily white. There is a clear oval ink stamp on the dome The side of the interior of the shell has the maker and shell size. This is NS 66 (for Nickelwerke Schwerte). This gem also has it's original chinstrap, which is short a few inches on one end. You will look long and hard to find a better example! And you can find the decal in Ken Niewiarowicz new book "Germany's Combat Helmets 1933-1945" Price, including my COA, is New Price! 1225 USD.

Superb, Rare 502nd PIR M-1C helmet Helmet

For sale is a very rare and desirable example of an original 502 Airborne helmet in outstanding condition. The consignor, a respected and advanced collector of WWII helmets, reports that he obtained this helmet from an advanced French collection and has had it a number of years. He also had the helmet evaluated by known experts who gave it excellent reviews. The components are all 'laundry numbered' with the original wearer's initial 'M' and last four digits of his serial number. It is possible to locate a private in the 502 whose last name started with 'M' and was assigned to third battalion and then to HQ. This transfer sequence is visible on the liner and steel pot, where it is logical (and therefore practical to the soldier) to only have to overpaint the heart on the steel pot; but less necessary to change the liner markings right away. The rendering of the overpaint and re-application of the outside hearts is forensically perfect, with the expected crackling on top of the covered heart where OD green paint covers those exposed edges. There also appears to have been a quick coat of lacquer thrown over the top of the hearts to make them shiny, possibly during headquarters assignment after the shooting stopped. The components are perfect: correct 1944 swivel bail front seam steel pot with most of its paint; fine Westinghouse M1-C liner with original untouched sweatband, web chincup, and leather chinstrap. The A straps are correctly factory installed and the proper web and color. The steel pot chinstraps are the correct 11 row web. All parts of this helmet fall together beautifully. Consignor will consider partial trade for nice size Heer M40 chickenwire camo helmet. Price including my COA is NEW PRICE 8.2k USD.

Price, including my COA, is SOLD USD.

Price, including my COA, is New Price 700 USD.

M35 Reissue Single Decal Heer

This is a nice example of an earlier re-issue helmet. The shell is a size 64 but the maker mark is obscured by the over-paint. It appears to be an ET shell, by its shape and rivet characteristics. The Schiefergrau is in the high 90s percentile. The decal is a standard re-issue type grey-lined, in excellent condition and showing nice detail. The liner is framed with a non-re-inforced aluminum band which indicates it to be of 1938 or earlier date but the maker mark/date on the band is difficult to discern-it is likely a 1937 make. The leather is in nice shape and shows honest wear. The chinstrap appears to be original to the helmet and has aluminum hardware but no maker mark. There are two small hairline cracks in the shell at the rear (see pics) one of them cannot even be seen from the outside and the other is faint. The helmet may have received these cracks during service and prior to its reissue. There are initials written onto the leather of the liner and the Germanic surname "Jansohn". Overall a top-shelf helmet. Price, including my COA, is New Price! 1275 USD.

Depot Refurbished FJ Helmet

The consignor, a seasoned collector, reports the following: "this helmet is a WWII period --- Depot reissue Luftwaffe M38 single decal camo helmet with vented spanner bolts. The camo was done with dabs of light brown paint over the factory finish giving it a very subtle appearance. Excellent decal, liner and straps. ET68 shell with modified size 59/71 liner. The liner band being reduced in size at the rear of the band between the rear spanner bolts. An additional piece of rubber pad was contoured and installed at the front of the helmet to provide additional cushioning need because of the reduced space between liner and shell. This type of work was done in repair/refit depots near the end of the war when nothing could be wasted. In this case, they needed size 71 helmets but had only size 68 shells." He also reports the helmet was a walk in at a Reno gun show a year or so ago. Price, is 7K USD.

This piece is an SE M35 size 62 shell in the 48xx batch series; finished and outfitted in exactly the M40 configuration. The eagle is a classic ET KM example.
