Firstly I should say that I need some help
with this helmet. It came to me as part of a
deal and with the understanding that in all
likelihood it was a post war rework. It
looks as though somebody got bored with a
restoration project or gave up halfway
through and slapped a coat of green paint
over an un-finished base. The decal appears
to a reproduction and the chinstrap is
certainly a recent addition. The interior
helmet stamps are also confusing me as the
production run number looks to be five
digits rather that the usual four ( 11826 ).
The maker stamp is "ET64".
The helmet also has large areas of grey paint?, including a covering on
the leather liner which has had a crude
attempt at removal. Totally at a loss to
explain this, so I am not even going to
A heavy duty helmet, probably post war including the helmet shell, with a
poor attempt to disguise it as period. Open
