World War II German M-42 Helmet
This is a World War II German M-42 helmet. The helmet’s shell retains almost all of its field-gray paint. The inside shell of the helmet has a few rust spots from being stored upside down. The shell is marked in the back “hkp 66” and the batch number is “4105.” The helmet also has a pig-skin liner with some staining from water damage, and one of the liner tongues has been cut off. The steel liner band has one bend at the back of the shell. Additionally, there is no chin strap with the helmet. The helmet itself is a very good example of a combat-worn and used German M-42 helmet.
