WWII German Army Camouflage Combat Helmet-This exact helmet is pictured on pages 74-75 in the excellent book by Paul C. Martin, The Camouflage Helmets of the Wehrmacht. This was originally a double decal example. The camouflage finish covers the decals and the outlines can clearly be seen. On the left side, a mall chip in the paint reveals a peek at the decal underneath. The camo finish is dark tan, red and green. The original green finish is seen inside. The size 57 liner is dark with very minor wear. It is soft and supple still. There is a reinforced aluminum liner band that is maker marked, dated 1938 and size stamped 64/57. It is a little loose inside the shell. The side of the interior is stamped Q 64 indicating production by Quist of Esslingen in the size of 64. The rear skirt is stamped with the lot number 763. There is a name in the rear skirt, “Rarhkolb”. There is a dark brown leather chinstrap as well. A very nice example overall!
