M42 Single Decal Army Helmet, ET Production.
Here is a great example of a WW2 German combat helmet, a single decal M42. The original paint finish remains in very nice condition with good texture and matt apperance, lets say well over 90% remaining. The decal remains at over 80% with a couple of knocks to the body, from the picture the beak looks a bit ''off'' but its had a tiny knock to the bottom, ive added one photo with some colour enhancement to try hand show the beak area, pictur 2 in the ''additional photos'' section . The liner pins are original to the shell and have not been re-bent. The liner shows moderate wear and in complete condition with no pulls, i have not checked any date to the steel band as its tight to the wall. The chinstrap has a makers stamp and IMHO original to the helmet, its supple with no weakness. The shell has a faint ET makers stamp but no size marking can be made out, id say a 68. The neck area has a again a weak hit and i can make out 3 digits only. I would say that this is a very clean example and new to the market.
