German WWII Model 1942 Combat Helmet- This style helmet could be used by Army, Navy, Luftwaffe, or SS combat troops. The semi-rough textured gray paint remains a remarkable 95% intact. The size 58 liner with a non-reinforced liner band is in very good condition with an untied drawstring. There are tears to one of the tongues and moderate discoloration and fraying. This late production helmet has the maker mark and batch number which are both very difficult to read. Another indication that this is a late production helmet is the steel is actually drawn out on the skirt, so it has a ribbing texture or appearance. Great display piece.
