Early Allgemeine-SS / Sicherheitsdienst Helmet
This is an SS helmet not often seen or available for sale. The shell at first appears as an inter-war commercially produced Austrian manufacture shell, but upon
inspection by transitional expert Bob H, is noted to be a WWI Austrian combat shell after all. In this earth brown paint color, this is a rarer helmet that had been in the German supply inventory since WWI (as
opposed to being direct contracted by the SS in the early 1930s like its commercial counterpart). What makes this helmet doubly interesting is it has the remnants of SA (Sturmabteilung) eagle and shield insignia
on each side. Indeed an historic and well-used early Nazi piece. The most interesting part is the actual history of the helmet, played out in the form of two property stampings in the liner and chinstrap: one of an Allgemeine
foot regiment which was once commanded by RK winner Fritz von Scholz, and the other a very rare Sicherungsamt RFSS stamp, indicating the security staff of RFSS Himmler. (I own an SS-RZM helmet with the same type marking and have
seen one other similar). All in all a rare helmet in beautiful condition, that speaks volumes of the early SS formation history.
This excellent example is priced at 4800 USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
Waffen-SS Foreign Volunteer Reversed Decal M-42
This helmet is a seldom-encountered example of a Waffen-SS foreign volunteer combat helmet,
worn in period photos in this reversed-decal configuration by the Ukranians, Prinz Eugen, Handschar and other formations of the Waffen-SS (see "SS-Steel" for period photos of these). These helmets are nearly always EF makers, and originated as double decal police. They were issued to foreign "Schutzmannschaften" organizations, which performed rear area and anti-
partisan police duties prior to being standardized into the SS in 1943, at which time they formed the core of the foreign volunteer divisions. It was at this time that they were converted to SS helmets, with the addtion
of (usually) a CA Pocher SS runic shield, placed atop the police shield. This completed the configuration of these helmets, and across the 25 or so examples existing in worldwide collections, this is a standard feature.
This exact helmet is featured in SS-Steel, pp 185-186. The shell is EF62, with the medium grey EF finish, which shows the expected spot oxydation visible within the EF factory paint. The liner is named "Folz" which could be a "Volksdeutsche" name.
the decals are the typical EF Pattern party shield and the Pocher shield placed atop the bordered Police, which can be seen along the bottom edge of the Pocher. This is a superb example of a rare SS helmet. Purchase includes my certificate
of lifetime guarantee of authenticity. New Price 17.5K USD
Early M35 Luftwaffe Winter Camo Helmet
For sale is a nice earlier M35 Luft, with ET62 shell that has the early serifed font and periods after the E and T. The lot number is 2328 and it has the un-reinforced liner band marked size 62. The band has the square chinstrap bales. I cannot make out the last digit of the date
but I can see the early "Schuberth-Werke AG Braunschweig and based on the lot number I am going to estimate the date is 1937. The outside of the helmet has a heavy layer of white paint, with very clear signs of age and wear (see magnified images). Under the paint the outline of the droop-tail eagle is clearly visible.
There are some remnants of the party shield visible the opposite side. Together with the helmet likely with it since WWII are a pair of red-tinted German Auer Neophan goggles with red lenses (to prevent snow blindness) that sat on the helmet, creating a distinct yellowed area on the white paint.
My observation overall of this helmet is it is an unmistakably original camo, and the goggles have been with it for a very long time. My impression is a dispatch rider or sniper may have used this. It is priced at SOLD USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
CKL 66 M-42 Waffen-SS Helmet
This outstanding example of a CKL 66 Waffen-SS helmet with classic Champagne rune SS Shield is available again for sale. The paint is a smoother texture
Schiefergrau and the liner and strap show medium use but are in fine untouched condition. This helmet comes from one of the most advanced SS helmet collections in the world.
This excellent example is priced at SOLD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
Very Nice Waffen-SS Q-64 Double Decal M-40 Helmet.
This outstanding helmet is a rarely encountered SS example. Quist helmets are always in demand, and there is something about a DD M-40 that grabs collectors' attention. This helmet is a later war production Q, reflecting the June '43 positioning of the size and batch number in the rear skirt. However,
with the one-look factory original Q pattern runic shield, I can see this helmet was produced before the November '43 decal prohibition (which did not take immediate effect even then. More interesting is the one-look period-applied CA Pocher party shield,
reflecting a possible use by garrison troops, such as Concentration Camp personnel or SS-Stabswache formations. This helmet bears an inscription: "Oscha ____" (name is illegible but could possibly be viewed under UV light). Nice overall example of a rare helmet, that would grace any collection. Purchase includes my certificate
of lifetime guarantee of authenticity. 15.2K USD
Later War No-Decal MINT Fallschirmjaeger Helmet. Here is an excellent and hard to upgrade later war Mint para helmet, with smoother texture schiefergrau finish and late style slotted bolts. The straps are the heftier mid-war pattern and they are flawless.
The liner is perfect, and nicely marked per the photos. This is a no-brainer excellent example and is priced at HOLD USD and includes my certificate of lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
