Late War German M42 Combat Helmet

This example is in very nice , never messed with, combat helmet. This late war M42 helmet was nevr issued with a decal and is maker marked to the rear of the shell, hkp62 and has a lot numer 3477. The shell has over 80% of its original paint finish with the missing paint being on the outer skirt, the paint has lots of its rought finish, the shell has not been cleaned, the usual skuff markings to the crown. The liner pins are tight and have never been re-bent or touched , the liner is in very supple condition with a nice cream colour, liner tie is original to the helmet, it has the initial M written on one tounge. The chinstrap appears to be original to the helmet, its in supple condition but missing its tip to the long section. The remains of a dome stamp can bee seen to the inside crown area. Purchased this week and one that nearly went into my collection due to the very nice condition but im afraid you cant keep them all.
