Description

Stunning combat worn Heer (Army)/Waffen-SS M42 no decal steel helmet in excellent condition. Untouched no decal helmets are much harder to find than their counterparts, mainly due to most had decals added post war/reproduction camo patterns painted on them. This is a textbook helmet, retaining its late war grey coating, with a great uncleaned layer remaining. Liner is original to the helmet and split pins remain unmessed with. The leather is nice and supple with sweat stains, as well as small blood spots. The genuine chin strap is still present, though it shows signs of being crudely cut off while being removed in the field. Maker marked in the rear by HKP for the manufacture (Sächsische Emaillier und Stanzwerke A.G.) and the larger than usually found size of 64, with the lot number of 611. This helmet would have been produced during the later period of 1944 and without a doubt saw combat! Truly a fantastic helmet for any collection.
