WWII German Luftwaffe Model 1942 Single Decal Helmet-This is a barn find! The chinstrap is gone but in its place is a string that was used to hang the helmet from a nail in the barn. The GI wrote "US" in a few different spots on the helmet, in green, including right next to the decal. The blue grey rough texture combat finish remains 80% intact. The decal itself is 80% intact also. The soft light brown leather liner is size stamped 59. It is in fine condition, with only very slight wear and scuffing. There is a drawstring and a zinc liner band that is maker marked, dated 1942 and size stamped 66/59. The side of the interior is stamped ET 66 indicating production by Eisenhuttenwerke of Thale in the size of 66. The rear skirt is stamped with the steel lot number 1582 indicating production some time in 1942. A great piece!
