WWII German Model 1918 “Ear Cut Out” Double Decal Army Transitional Helmet-This M-18 helmet was reissued for use during WWII with the addition of a dark green combat finish which remains 95% or more intact. Also added was a WWII type army decal, this remains 90% intact as does the tri color shield over on the right side. Inside is the original, thick, light brown leather liner that is in excellent condition. There is a drawstring and all of the padding underneath appears to be intact.  The side of the interior is stamped “ET 64” indicating production by Eisenhuttenwerke of Thale in the size of 64. This is a desirable “ear cut out” example, and each and every example of this type was produced by ET in size 64. The original, dark brown leather chinstrap included as well.  It has a metal snap hook closure. A scarce and extremely desirable helmet!
