This is a good solid combat helmet. The paint is sill decent, but showing only light honest age and use, as is the decal. The liner and strap are not original to the helmet, but correct and a perfect match. In today's day in age this is a reasonably priced real SS combat helmet for your collection which will display well.
This one is out of my collection. It was bought from a motel buy about 20 years ago, by a friend of mine, just the way you see it. The finish is a semi thick paint which has been sprayed over in a 3 color scheme. The colors are excellent and just a bit better in person then in the photos. The original liner is excellent with a nice name inside. A four inch piece of the original aluminum band is broken and missing. This is the way it was bought fro the vet, and so I did not want to mess with it. I can include an original aluminum band to the buyer incase you would like to fix it. This is a top shelf camo which displays really well
This is right out of the woodwork in Warren, Michigan. Its an huge size 68 M35 DD Army painted over is a semi rough field green paint over the National Color decal, but around the Army decal. Both the decal and a paint are excellent. The aluminum 1938 dated band liner is very good, only slightly dirty. The rivets and washers have never been moved. the chinstrap is very solid, but RB numbered, so I think a later war time replacement. Overall it is a really nice original un-messed-with helmet.
This is a good honest ex-DD helmet with the National Colors removed as per 1940 regulations. The early semi gloss paint was field painted over with a typical German helmet green. The Army decal is mostly there and looks decent. The 1938 dated liner is very good and still tight with the correct spacers. The original strap was period shortened. Overall, this is a good looking combat helmet perfect for your display while not breaking the bank.
This is a solid helmet for your display. It was painted silver years ago, and stripped off. The green paint is not the best, but original. The decal is very good. Much of the liner is still there. For the $$$ it looks good and is perfect of the economy minded collector.
I bought this from the US WWII Army doctor's son. Its comes with a few if his war stories he wrote and copies of photos of him in uniform. The helmet is very attractive with excellent paint and decal. The liner is clean, but a little dry and missing one tongue, which is typical in these later war helmets. The GI's name is written in the leather. The chinstrap is full length. This helmet will display very well and is a great honest untouched example.
This is right out of the woodwork. It shows age and use but has never been worked on or fixed. There is some rusty and a crack on the top but it still looks good. I think a light clean up would make it look even better. The liner is gone, but the original band and rivets are still there. It will display fine for the money.
This is right out of the woodwork in Wayne, Michigan. The field green paint and decal are very good. The 1936 dated liner is correct and very solid. The name on the inside is just the way it should be. It's a cool helmet and a very good example of a Luftwaffe Field Div. helmet.
This came form an old collection and is a good looking example. The paint and decal are very good. There is a small spot on the top missing paint, but is hard to see, and does not detract. The liner is very solid and has never been played with. All the rivets are factory installed. The chinstrap is a solid and 1942 dated. It displays well; is not mint but very nice, and ready for a home.

There has been much debate over these helmets over the last 15 years. I first discovered these helmets in Prague before the wall came down around 1985. The Germans used Prague as a depot for tropical uniforms and equipment. The Germans had planned great offensives in southern Russia with the goal of eventually linking up with the troops from Africa. These helmets could have been part of the tropical stuff for those planned operations. All these tan helmets, I have observed, were always made with German war-time parts and made to German specs. Some collectors have made some statements about them being for an order to Egypt after the war, by the Czechs. I am not sure. Perhaps they were rebuilt after the war, but why? In any event it is excellent plus and all German WWII parts. Yes, I have one in my collection too.
