Superb EF M35 Heer Helmet.
For me, one of the most collectible M35 helmets is the EF, whether Heer, Luft or SS. They have a special look to the shell that I like,
and their manufacture was quite varied and different from the big name mainstream makers (ET, Quist, SE), which I also find attractive. This helmet is no exception. The shell is an EF64,
with the typical slate-colored flat finish these helmets were noted for. The Heer adler and national decals are lightly lacquered and near 100% mint. The finish is also superb, with just a few
storage nicks. The liner and strap are correct EF components, with the strap dated 1939--probably the actual first year of full-up, significant EF M35 production. The rear skirt bears a name in faded ink. Given the overall condition, this piece is a must for the advanced Heer
helmet collection. Priced at HOLD 5K USD it includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
Early Luftwaffe M35 Helmet.
This is a very nice example of an early Q62 Luft Helmet, with 1937 dated liner and strap. The eagle is perfect, as is the paint and liner. The
national colors shield suffered a degree of flaking and wear, but is also in decent shape. This example would be a fine addition to any helmet collection. Priced reasonably at 2800 USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
Factory Single Decal Kriegsmarine M35 Helmet.
This outstanding helmet is an SE64 M35 shell, that is completely configured as an M40. The fact that the batch number is 4848 tells me this piece was
factory produced as an M40, which happened to have an M35 shell. This in my view is the quintessential mark of helmet production for the smaller services (remember, a KM helmet is much rarer than an SS helmet given how
small the KM was as a service). The paint, liner, decal, strap, etc are completely original untouched, and in near-mint condition. This example would be hard to upgrade. Priced at SOLD 3K USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
EF M40 Single Decal Kriegsmarine Helmet.
This second piece is textbook KM, and quite scarce as an EF M40. It is a nice size 66 shell with near mint paint, perfect KM eagle untouched liner and
Singer Kalttau strap (excellent maker to find). Highly collectible and nearly impossible to upgrade this one. Priced at SOLD 3K USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
"Droop Bill" Allgemeine-SS Helmet With Partial Decal.
This helmet is consigned from an advanced collector and is a rough but representative example of an early Droop Bill SS Helmet.
The factory satin black paint is about 50%. The liner is very fragile, with partial chinstrap remaining. The party shield is removed, and the runic shield is about 25-30%.
Contact me for price and additional information.
EF64 Police Double Decal Helmet.
This is a classic example of an EF M42 production double decal Polizei helmet. All components are tight and untouched
original to the piece. Comes from the same collection of meticulously collected top condition pieces. Will not disappoint the most discriminating SS / Polizei collector. Priced
at SOLD 2200 USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
Schutzpolizei Double Decal SE64 M40 Helmet.
Here is an excellent example of a SchuPo M40 that is in crisp, 98% condition overall. The bordered police shield and ET style party shield are excellent and the smooth slate grey
finish is minty. This helmet would grace any SS / Police helmet collection and is priced very reasonably at SOLD 2300 USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
Heer Factory Single Decal ET66 M35 Helmet.
This Heer M35 is another rare piece that shows the transition between M35 and M40. In this case the batch number is 4727, which is high in the ET M35 production range.
The paint is a smooth finish slate grey (schiefergrau) without any texture, but is the deep color used in some of the final M35s produced across the spectrum of makers, including ET, SE, NS and EF--with Q retaining their
very matte quality to their paint, as a differentiator. The liner retaining pins are light green in hue, also reminiscent of this color scheme trend. The treatment of the application of the adler shield is typical ET.
As a helmet collector, this is a prized specimen to come available. It is priced at 3K USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
Superb Heer M42 Single Decal Helmet.
This is a late production ET (CKL) M42, large size and immaculate condition. The decal shows every sign of being origial period applied to the helmet despite the higher (4k series)
batch number. Aside from its owner being one of the more advanced in the helmet collecting hobby, the decal itself shows expected oxidation and patina, commensurate with WWII application. Simply a stunning piece that has escaped
damage and wear. Given its condition, it is reasonably priced at 2K USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
Outstanding Luft M40 Single Decal Helmet.
The pictures speak for themselves on this beauty. The brown early style chinstrap assembly is original to this helmet, and bears the correct treatment expected in terms of stitching, trimming etc, at the factory.
It is marked with a 'B' below the buckle. Superb helmet, would grace any Luft collection. Priced at HOLD 1600 USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
Probable Legion Kondor 1937 M35 Helmet.
In 50 years of collecting I have only seen a few unmarked M35 helmets, and they were always from the Chinese batch that were sold to the Nationalists in the mid 1930s.
This helmet comes from that same early time frame and even though unmarked, shows the hallmark traits of the earliest ET M35s ever produced. The basic color is the early apple green, and the liner retaining rivets are the zinc-coated brass variety.
The camo overpaint is a mustard yellow. The helmet has a 1937-dated liner band and is unit marked in the liner. Experienced collectors have speculated that the culmination of the attributes of this helmet indicate this may be a Legion Kondor helmet. I can provide additional information on request.
Priced at Contact me for price and other info and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
Heer M35 Double Decal Helmet.
This is a clean example of a DD Heer M35, fairly early ET production. The paint and decals, as well as the liner, are untouched and
very good to excellent condition overall. Shell size is 60, with liner size 53. Priced reasonably at 2500 USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
"Droop Bill" Allgemeine-SS Helmet.
This helmet is an out of the woodwork example of a no-decal early production Droop Bill helmet which was contracted by the SS in 1933-early 1934.
The style is unmistakeable and ubiquitous in early SS photographs. Priced reasonably at SOLD 2100 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 New Price 900 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 New Price 1050 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 New Price 2250 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-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 HOLD 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 New Price USD 1600 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 New Price 2500 USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
Austrian M16 SS Earthbrown Helmet-Former SA.
Available again is this unusual and rare example of an SA helmet which was stripped and converted for use by the SS. The helmet consists of an Austrian M16 combat shell with an early '30s liner and chinstrap conversion.
The liner bears the stamp of an SS foot Standart that was commanded by Fritz von Scholz, and the chinstrap bears the stamp of the Sicherungsamt- RFSS. All in all a very interesting early SA / SS helmet.
Priced reasonably at 4K USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
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.
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.
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 Again Available 2200 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.

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

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
