Some Exceptional New Additions
Stunning SS-VT Transitional Double Decal Helmet in Feldgrau
This Feldgrau German M16 ET64 SS transitional helmet is stone mint and unworn. It is also quite rare to find one of these. The paint and decals are 100% and the liner is
storage condition. The liner string was added because it appeared there was one in place originally. For the transitional aficionado, this is one of the finest helmets I have ever had the
privilege to offer. Specs include classic, perfect condition CA Pocher runic and party shields. They don't get better than this, especially that gorgeous runic shield. Price includes my 100% lifetime guarantee of authenticity 24.9K USD
Beautiful Early Allgemeine-SS Transitional Helmet
This outstanding helmet features an Austrian M16 shell with M28 liner and large buckle leather chinstrap. The paint is satin black over Austrian brown and the insignia are hand-rendered. The premier
black helmet collector has had four of these exact hand rendered helmet examples, and they are all done up the same way in the refurbishment process. From Ludwig Baer, we know that hand-painted insignia were mandated by the RFSS in 1934, and in early 1935 ere quickly
replaced by the advent of the CA Pocher RFSS approved transfer design. This picture of Jakob Grimminger bearing the blood flag shows one of these insignia clearly. A super rare and early SS piece, very desirable and goes with the early
Allgemeine and Bereitsschaft displays. Price includes my 100% lifetime guarantee of authenticity 19.2K USD
Allgemeine-SS M16 Transitional Helmet
This example came out of the woodwork in the northeast and once belonged to my late friend Jules L.
The configuration is the typical German refurbishment (satin black over field grey) and also features an early Czech style strap. The party shield is classic CA Pocher, as are the runes, but the runes
went on sloppily (these were applied at the unit level and often the paint was not cured or other factors influenced the application process). A nice size, excellent display piece. Price includes my 100% lifetime guarantee of
authenticity 20K USD.
Very Nice SS-VT Marked SS-RZM Helmet
This issue SS-RZM helmet comes in the factory anodized looking finish that resembles gunmetal grey.
The helmet bears the metal stretch marks and rivet placement very specifc to this design. Moreover, the SS and RZM stamps are perfect examples that bear the
peculiar 'fingerprint' of the dyes used to make the stamps. The liner is also one of two types used in these helmets and is fully intact including the super rare strap.
These are often destroyed or missing. Inside the leather liner band is the inscription "7/SS G.", denoting 7th company, SS-"Germania".
A classic, super original and unit marked piece, the sale includes my 100% lifetime guarantee of authenticity 11K USD.
Minty M34 Sicherheitsdienst (SD) Helmet
Here is a fine, collectible example, classic configuration, of the iconic SD helmet. Paint, decals and liner are in excellent and complete condition, with no
issues. This is a larger size and makes a super display piece. Fellows, look at the photo record--these were worn at camps, in Einsatzgruppen, in combat, as well as by the SD. PS: It's Named and can be researched.
Very reasonably priced example 7.9K USD.
Mint Waffen-SS Double Decal Helmet
Here is a nearly stone mint example of a rare type of Q62 SS M35. It is in chalky mint condition with factory applied
Quist pattern runic and party shields. The shell, interestingly, is an M35, but it is thoroughly factory produced as an M40 helmet. That signifies this is one of the last M35 shells to go through the production system, a leftover in a sense.
Given the 1940 liner date, this was one of the many early M40s that were produced with two decals--I have an example in my collection that is an M40 shell,
but it is rare to see one of these that is an M35 shell but thrown into the M40 production process. The liner is mint and untouched. The pigskin chinstrap (yes, they had these even in
the late '30s, is fragile and has become separated. The veteran who brought this back has passed and his obituary is available to the buyer. A helmet this nice won't last long, and it's destined for a top shelf position in an SS helmet collection. Price includes my lifetime
guarantee of authenticity 17.9K USD.
Relic Camo Waffen-SS Single Decal Helmet From Kharkov Battlefield
A Russian fellow comes up with these every now and then and I find them to be historically intriguing
and highly collectible in their own right. This one is a tan camo has been underground in a bunker position that has kept it from completely disappearing. Priced for what it is, a historical
relic from a famous battlefield. 1300 USD.
Excellent EF M42 Single Decal Helmet
Sharp, crisp example of an EF M42 Waffen-SS helmet, complete with excellent liner, strap and medium texture EF schiefergrau finish.
This helmet is a great example of the EF product line of 1943, with some storage scuffing to the decal area. For the excellent condition W-SS
combat display. Priced reasonably and includes my lifetime guarantee of authenticity 6.9K USD.
Beautiful Allgemeine-SS / SS-VT Black Transitional Helmet
Offered for sale from an advanced SS collection is a once in a lifetime condition and rarity, SS VT / Allgemeine SS transitional. The shell is an Austrian M16 that is
one of the many thousands scooped up by the SS in their bulk purchases from Austrian and Czech suppliers. They were not a client of the Wehrmacht supply system in the early '30s, and therefore had to go outside of
the system; the country in fact, to procure their equipment. This piece is finished in a thin spray coat of satin black, right atop the field grey issue color. The liner system is the M28 three pad type, with wide
roller buckle chinstrap assembly. Finally, a classic pair of CA Pocher runic and party shields top off the refurbish. This exact paint and liner system is found in another example which is
pictured in "SS-Steel". Moreover, a few of these exact configurations exist in other advanced collections. I have not seen one this nice for sale anywhere in years. Priced commensurate with its rarity, condition and overall aesthetic
and includes my lifetime guarantee of authenticity 22K USD.
Waffen-SS EF62 M42 Single Decal Reissue / Camo Helmet
This example is a worn and salty battle helmet. This is about the fifth one painted in this peculiar color,
that I have seen. The hand applied camo paint is thick and has a similar look to the textured reissue style paint, but it differs in being a more earth grey color.
On other examples I've seen, this look was solidly into the camo category for me. The classic EF pattern runic shield has some scuffs and chips
to it, holding it from being a bit more expensive piece. All in all, it is a great example for a combat display, with untouched original liner.
The strap is no longer present. Price, with COA, is 4.5k USD.
