WWII German Luftwaffe Model 1942 Souvenir Helmet-This great piece has a ton of writing in yellow ink. It has the names of some friends with funny messages like “Jigg Johnson (The Southern Guy), Save Me a Quart”, and “Shipper Golden Gate in 48”. There is a Luftwaffe decal that is heavily worn but visible. The original finish is mostly missing. The liner is very stiff and discolored with “shrinkage”. There is a zinc liner band. The writing continues inside. 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 2618 indicating production in 1942. Truly a one of a kind example!
