Description
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing

 

You are viewing an original M42 stahlhelm, a collectable relic from World War II, and one of the most recognized icons of the period.

Marked on the inside, left rim of the steel dome is the factory abbreviation and size ‘ET66’. This denotes the factory was Eisenhuttenwerke, Thale. The rear rim of the helmet is marked with the numeric factory production code but this is barely legible.  

The liner system is the M1931 with aluminium band. None of the leather fingers are present, but the band retains the edge of the liner. The liner appears correctly secured with three steel retaining rivets. Maker marks are not clear without pulling out the liner. The chinstrap is two-piece, natural on one side, black on the other and also also shows heavy wear. It is secured with aluminium rivets and single prong buckle. 

The helmet looks to have been painted field grey though only about 10% remains. The helmet displays plenty of wear and some rust, although the rust now looks inert and there are no obvious dents or dings.

I am happy to ship internationally, recorded delivery. Please ask any questions before bidding. Please view the pictures closely – bought as seen and as I am a private seller, no returns. Please note the stand is not included in the sale. Finally please note any bidder agrees to use this helmet for historical reasons only and not for propaganda purposes.  

Thanks for looking, grab yourself a very collectable WW II relic.
