M9524 - WAFFEN SS VOLUNTEERS M42 HELMET   Sold
A Waffen SS single decal M42 helmet, the decal, which is very good, being on the opposite side to the standard SS helmet, denoting that it was issued to a foreign volunteer, shell is good with most original finish remaining, leather of the liner assembly has been very dry and has been waxed to preserve it, has a chinstrap but this may have been added recently. This helmet was found in Berlin when the wall was pulled down, in a house just on its eastern side, in an area fought over in 1945 by the french volunteers of the Charlemagne Div, its quite possible it was worn by one of these troops.

M9575 - WAFFEN SS M40 COMBAT HELMET   £780
A good condition M40 combat helmet with the remains of a single Waffen SS runic decal, looks to be an attempt at deliberate removal but crudely done, leaving enough to see what it was, otherwise dark green paint finish is good with minimal wear, large size shell with full liner assembly in good order, just missing a chinstrap, fairly low price due to the condition of the decal but a very good helmet otherwise.

M9153 - RELIC M38 PARA HELMET SHELL.   £630
A relic M38 german para helmet shell, which although it has corroded through in a couple of area's, is unusual in still having patches of very good paint finish both inside and out. A good display item that was recovered from the marshes around Carentan in normandy some years ago.

M9152 - RELIC M38 PARA HELMET SHELL WITH BULLET HOLE.   £630
Original german M38 para helmet shell, recovered from the Carentan area in normandy, shell is quite sound, though all paint has been lost and it has a bullet hole to one side, historic item.

M9473 - RED AND YELLOW HELMET BAND   Sold
A cloth band with elastic section, reversable from red to yellow, with metal hooks to enable it to be worn on the german steel helmet for manoevres and training, rare to find an original one that has survived, colours are faded with age but otherwise its in good condition. Photo's show these bands can also be worn on caps, yellow side worn to show forces knocked out and red for those acting as enemy forces.

M9572 - M42 WAFFEN SS, NORMANDY CAMO HELMET   £1260
A good condition, small size, M42 combat helmet, with normandy camo paint finish and the remains of a single Waffen SS decal to the side, well used, with complete, sweat stained and worn leather liner assembly and chinstrap. Helmet was found in and brought back from normandy some years ago.

M9192 - M42 ARMY HELMET WITH CHICKENWIRE COVER.   £695
A fairly late issue M42 army helmet, with good dark, combat green finish and having an original chickenwire camo cover in place, used to attach camo material as required, has a very good leather liner assembly but is missing its chinstrap, medium size.

M9190 - M40 SINGLE DECAL ARMY HELMET WITH GREEN CAMO.   £550
Army single decal M40 helmet, has a single green colour camo applied over the factory dark green paint finish, that has been painted around the single army eagle decal, which is around 60% complete. Helmet has a good leather liner assembly and is complete with its chinstrap, size medium to large.

M9356 - M40 DOUBLE DECAL ARMY HELMET.   £775
A good double decal M40 army helmet, with very good paint finish, having just a few rubbed area's, the army eagle decal is about 85%, the national shield a little more worn at about 75%, helmet has a very good leather liner assembly and original chinstrap. The M40 helmet not often seen with double decals, this looks to be an early issue with brass liner rivets as used on the M35.

M9439 - LUFTWAFFE SINGLE DECAL M40 HELMET CAMO   Sold
A good luftwaffe M40 helmet, with single eagle decal, which has been overpainted with dark sand, carefully leaving the eagle visible, colour would suggest it originated in italy, has rubbed through to the blue/grey in places but is still very good, the eagle is around 90%. Interior is in original finish, has good liner with usual sweat staining and has its chinstrap itact.

M9440 - LUFTWAFFE M40 SINGLE DECAL HELMET   £460
A small sized M40 helmet with single luftwaffe eagle decal of about 80% has the later dark blue paint finish intact, complete with good leather liner and chinstrap.

M9468 - LUFTWAFFE M40 HELMET WITH TROPICAL CAMO   Sold
A large size M40 combat helmet, the original green finish over painted by hand with dark sand camo paint, typical of that used in the Italian campaigns, no trace of decals but may have been painted over, camo paint worn in places and age darkened, has very good leather liner assembly & chinstrap and traces of the owners name in white paint to the rear inside rim.

M9469 - LUFTWAFFE M35 DOUBLE DECAL HELMET   £650
A good M35 combat helmet with double luftwaffe decals in very good condition, the blue/grey paint finish is mostly intact but a little scruffy, interior has a complete liner assembly, though worn and is missing the chinstrap, size is small.

M9574 - LUFTWAFFE M35 DAMAGED HELMET   Sold
A large sized, M35 luftwaffe double decal helmet, that has shrapnel damage to the crown, otherwise the finish to the shell is pretty good and the decals very good. Shrapnel damage is not severe, two holes at front of the crown, punched inwards with loss of paint around them. Inside the liner assembly is worn but good and is fitted with a chinstrap, good display item.

M9079 - LUFTWAFFE DOUBLE DECAL FIRE HELMET.   £480
A very good and scarce luftwaffe fire fighters helmet, the helmet with its comb over the shell in blue/grey paint finish, has excellent double decals, with the eagle being the early drooptail type, has good liner and chinstrap and is complete with its leather neck guard flap. These helmets were used by the fire teams on luftwaffe airfields.

M8467 - FIRE POLICE HELMET WITH LEATHER SKIRT.   £105
A very good condition, helmet of the National Fire Protection Police, with full leather neck skirt and double Y pattern chinstrap assembly to the full leather liner, did have a single decal on the black painted shell but this has been removed, possibly for postwar use, good to have its full leather neck skirt, often removed, very nice item.

M9012 - DOUBLE DECAL FIRE POLICE HELMET.   £200
An all black finished civil defence helmet, with double decals for the fire police, the decals are pretty good with just the usual scuffs & scratches, helmet has a good liner assembly and a very good chinstrap, nice early helmet.

M8921 - CAPTURED ADRIAN HELMET, LUFTSCHUTZ MARKED.   £200
Interesting use of a captured french Adrian helmet, large size, reissued with a nice Luftshutz decal to the front over the area where the french formation badge has been removed, for civil defence use, the original french green paint finish has been left intact. Unusual period feature is that the inner liner pads have been covered with zeltbahn splinter pattern, camo material, though one is missing, not seen this done before.

M3635 - AUSTRIAN M16 ARMY TRANS/HELMET WITH CZECH LINER.   £495
A good, single decal army transistional helmet, based on the WW1 Austrian combat helmet, which had already been reissued to the czech army, with repaint and a new liner assembly, then when the germans took over in 1939, the helmet was reissued again to the army by the simple means of adding a army decal, so it has quite a history. The excellent czech paint finish is a little more grey than the german colour but is quite close, the decal is in good order with only slight scuffs, the good czech leather liner is almost identical the german M31 and has a very good chinstrap. An interesting helmet compared to the normal german trans/ types.
