Description

Honest and worn M42 Waffen-SS helmet. Single decal example with a classic pair of ET-style SS runes that match the manufacturer of this shell. The decal rates about 70% still showing the most important parts. The liner, executed in pig-skin leather, retains 5 of its 9 leather tongues and show significant damage and wear. The genuine draw string and chin strap are still present. The chin strap is maker marked with an RBNr. and lost its split pin because the leather is torn in the beginning. The strap itself is still supple and has its full lenght, the buckle is funcitional. The split pins remain straight and untouched. The liner band is dated 1943. The helmet is maker marked by ckl, size 64 and has lotnumber 3132. When searching the database, already two SS examples were known to date with the same lot number. This lid was found in Denmark and came straight out of the woodwork, it has been at a collectors house for ages and it’s the first time it’s offered for sale. A beautiful and more important TEXTBOOK example of a late war Waffen-SS M42 helmet!
