#G2126 Heer / SS M40 ND Helmet with Googles
Original WWII German Heer / SS M40 late production no decal helmet with original googles in excellent condition.  Manufactured by Quist in size 64.  The helmet itself is in good lightly used condition with overall nice original brown leather liner and all washers in place and tight pins. The lot number on the rear appears to be DN38_ which consulting the lot number database is correct and consistent for a Quist M40 no decal helmet. The googles were displayed on the helmet when we purchased this from a collector and we have decided to offer the nice together as it displays nicely and fits like a glove without causing any damage.  The original googles also include the original leather pouch for storing them while not in use. This is a great example of an arsenal refinished combat helmet with cool looking googles that displays really nicely.  Cool helmet. $650

#RG22 National Socialist Motor Corps NSKK M40 Helmet
Rare and desirable National Socialist Motor Corps (NSKK) M40 Helmet.  As with all original NSKK helmets, this one started life as a Luftwaffe issue helmet, it is a model M40 ET66 Lot# 59.  The helmet was original wartime repainted and reissued for service in the NSKK.  All known true original NSKK helmets were re-issued from Luftwaffe available inventory, as they oversaw supply to the NSKK.  The reissue consisted of a grey-blue repaint that went over the existing Luftwaffe decal, which is still partially visible under the paint in the right angle and I have tried to show it in the photos. The helmet was originally sold by Giorgio at Italian War Front many years ago.  This exact helmet was then previously posted on GHW2 where it received all positive reviews in 2008, please follow the link at the bottom of this listing to see that discussion.  A very desirable true original NSKK helmet in service used condition, an extremely uncommon helmet. $3800

Heer / SS Late War No Decal M42 Helmet EF64
Unissued Heer or SS late war no decal M42 helmet manufactured by EF (Emaillerwerke A.G. Fulda) in size 64.  Breakdown of markings: 'EF' represents the maker, which is Emaillerwerke A.G. Fulda.  '64' represents the size.  '4891' represents the lot number of approximate 1943-1944 manufacturing based on current known information.  Consulting the excellent lot number database on GHW2, this helmet is consistent with other no decal M42's in this range produced by this maker.   The helmet was purchased from the famous RonR collection and is completely untouched.  One of Ron's photos is shown, the helmet was discussed positively on GHW2.  The liner has never been removed and all the pins are still super tight with original washers in place.  The original helmet string and chinstrap are original to the helmet and never removed or touched.  The condition of the late war quality painted steel is excellent, the factory original paint is very strong with a few minor scratches from storage or from being shipped to the USA as a souvenir from the war. These late war helmets were popular souvenirs of the period, attached is a photo of USAF personal looting a box car full of them to mail home to friends and family.  This late war M42 is exactly how it should be and is in top condition, it would be extremely tough to upgrade! *Sold*

#G2017 M40 Single Decal Heer Helmet ET62
Desirable M40 single decal Heer (Army) helmet manufactured by ET (Eisenhüttenwerk Thale / Herz).  This is one of the most iconic helmet variations of WWII.  Breakdown of markings: ET62 represent the maker ET and size 62.  1250 represents the helmet lot number, consulting the excellent German helmet lot number database on GHW2 this helmet is consistent with other M40 Heer helmets with toned Heer decals occasionally confused with Kriegsmarine decals given the slightly golden tone.  The liner is marked '55' which represents the liner size, 55 is a common period size and would the same as a size 55 cap. The helmet is complete with chinstrap, when I acquired this helmet there was no chinstrap so I added one in matching condition correct for this helmet from my inventory to complete it.   The steel liner is tight and never removed with all washers in place.  It is becoming increasingly difficult to find good Heer helmets with factory applied decals nicely intact.  A great classic helmet for any WWII collection. *Sold*

#SB1 Kriegsmarine M42 Helmet in Shipboard Grey
Kriegsmarine M42 helmet painted ‘shipboard grey’.  Consignor reports this helmet was found in trash bin in Bagenkop, Denmark, on the island of Langeland north of Kiel, Germany.  The helmet is presented on the shipboard grey discussion thread on GHW2.  There are clear markings on the top of the helmet that indicate that it likely sat in a shipboard helmet rack, as shown in period photos.  Metal on metal scouring is visible on the top probably from the vibration of the ship or boat. Langeland is an island near Kiel that had a heavy KM presence during the war, in addition to land radar installations, there was a ship repair yard and an E-boat base. Several sunken E-boats are still in the waters off of Bagenkop, where this helmet was found.  The colour is consistent with the fog grey camouflage of many of E-boats. The chinstrap is unmarked but has paint residue from the helmet. The paint is a kind of marine gloss finish, with what appears to be exposure to salt air and sea water. Another interesting and rare helmet variation that rarely comes around with positive discussion on GHW2. *Sold*
