WWII German Model 1938 Luftwaffe Camouflage (FJR 6), Named Paratrooper Helmet-This handsome example has the distinctive Fallschirmjäger Regiment 6 camouflage scheme of green and tan. The finish checks in at 75% intact. There are a few small dings in the shell. You can clearly see the Luftwaffe eagle decal under the finish on the left side. The brown leather, size stamped 59 liner is a bit stiff, with some discoloration and wear from use. There is writing on the liner in addition to the standard maker and size ink stamps. The aluminum liner band is definitely wavy. The spanner bolts are the standard pattern. The discolored white insert pads are all present. The harness has been cut, with the long section that went through the buckle missing. The side of the interior is stamped ET 71 indicating production by Eisenhuttenwerke of Thale in the size of 71. The rear skirt is stamped with the lot number 258 (production in 1941). There is a name in the rear skirt as well, "E. Eppstein". A very intriguing example that is priced to move! Thanks to our friend Herlé from France, we now know this helmet belonged to Obergefreiter Heinz Eppstein who was born on the 10th of February,1920 in Limburg. His dog tag number was 25617/14 and that he was wounded on June 6th, 1944(D-Day!) at Meautis, Normandy!
