M42 SD Heer German Helmet HA-194
NS62 #D229 A nice solid single decal that displays nicely. The decal doesn't have any major damage, and the some of the detail
has been lost from wear
but it is complete. The liner band is very tight and I can't make out the date. The leather is in excellent
condition. The buckle is the early aluminum type, and the long end of the chin strap looks to be an equipment strap adaptation.
M42 SD Heer German Helmet HA-192
ckl?64 # ? This is one if the nicest helmets that have come along lately. It looks to have been hardly used by a staff member
according to the tag in the back flange. The tag is covering the maker and batch number, but you can see the size 64. The exterior paint
and decal are close to 98%, and the liner leather is soft and supple. The liner band is dated 1942 and there is a very nice dome stamp
that is clearly visible. The interior flange looks to have some type of very old clear coat. It looks like it was done over the tag, so it
might have been done to adhere the tag, which states Schuler Stab (staff). This one is a beauty!
Heer German Helmet HA-189
SE62 Batch# 3880 This helmet is a true reissued German helmet that features an excellent reissue decal,and a nice exterior repaint.
The liner has been treated long ago, and does have a tear along the back of the helmet. The steel band liner is dated 1941
Overall a nice reissue example. $695
M42 SD Heer German Helmet HA-187
ET 62, Batch #2163 This is one great decal on this one, and it looks great on the shelf! The exterior paint is excellent and the decal as
mentioned is 95%. The liner band is dated 1940, and one of the split pins is missing. I have carefully looked this over and believe that
the split pin was missed at the factory. The split pin shows no signs what ever of being tampered with, and it has that slight curve that
can't be duplicated. The other split pins are original to this helmet and have not been touched. The leather is stiff with some cracks and
wear on the front rim. The chin strap is broken off on both sides, so there is not much there to work with. The dome stamp is visible. $850
M35 DD Heer German Helmet HA-186
Q64 Batch #2888. This helmet is very unique with having a very early reissue painted exterior or a parade touch up. The exterior has been
painted with a thin apple green paint and redecaled very early in its life. It is very unusual to have been done in the apple green factory color,
and with a unit marking and rack number is suggests a redo for parade purposes. Which ever way it happened we will never know, but it is
a very unusual combination. The single band aluminum liner is dated 1937 and the leather has an embossed marking of the size and date.
The single band was still used very early in 1937 before they started to reinforce the sides. There is a unit mark and rack number as previously
mentioned. The chin strap is dated 1936 and has the early aluminum buckle. $1295
Austrian Transitional DD Heer German Helmet HA-181
This is a beautiful DD transitional helmet that would be tough to upgrade. The decals are excellent, and the exterior paint is rigt there
too. The liner band is dated 1942, which is standard for these helmets. It is likely that a number of these helmets went through the reissuing
process and were refitted with the later liners. The leather is untouched and looks like it has never been worn. The chin strap is the early
aluminum buckle type and is maker marked and dated 1938. Top quality trany! $1995
Heer Pith Helmet HO-109
2nd pattern tropical helme
with felt covering and leather rim, which are all in excellent condition. The chin strap is
complete and is in very nice shape. The insignia looks original to the helmet, and the interior is very, very nice! There
is a maker mark and size 58 tag along with the date stamping of 1942 on the inside rim.
