Description
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing

A good combat used example of the helmet worn from 1943 onwards, this particular helmet is a BNB and dated 1944. The helmet's exterior has the dark chocolate brown paint throughout, there is some rust spotting and chipping overall.

The three brass bolts are present and tight. The Sorbo to the helmet's liner is slightly dry and crispy as is normal with these helmets. The inner crash pad to the crown is present. All webbing tapes remain good. The webbing chinstrap is present with the correct WWII herringbone tape to the overlap of the rear securing buckle. The helmet is completely untouched in dusty stored condition with a normal amount of wear and one or two tiny worm holes to the leather. The '44' date is good and clear. These helmets were worn during operations from 44 onwards and can be seen in profusion in the Rhine crossing type operations. Code: 52951
