Original WW2 Manufactured German 1942 pattern helmet very large size. Liner size 59cms with 100% complete decal.
Please press "See other items" to view what else I'm currently auctioning. This is a totally genuine WW2 steel helmet produced during WW2 in Germany between 1942 and 1945. The helmet here is guaranteed of genuine WW2 vintage.
It was made by the company Sachsiche Emaillerwerke in Lauter Germany. Early in the war their helmets were stamped SE but this changed to hkp after 1940. This helmet is stamped hkp68. The size 68 helmet is very rare to find as comparatively few of this very large size were made. A prominent feature of the hkp made helmets is that the ventilator stampings are larger and stick out more than those of other manufacturers giving these helmets a very distinctive appearance.
The helmet shell is the only thing here which is genuinely from WW2. The whole helmet has been totally refurbished, repainted and refitted with top quality reproduction components and a single decal for an elite soldier. There is also a rubber acceptance stamp on the inner dome which is of the totally period correct design.
This is a superb helmet. Displays really well and would be perfect for reenactment. You dont often find them in this size and condition anymore! I was told that it was one of the ones created by the American company who supplied the Movie FURY.
The quality of paint finish and in particular the elite decal itself are identical to the ones used on the film. An extremely slight and shallow dent in the dome but nothing to detract from what is basically a mint example of a helmet as it would have been issued to a German trooper on day one of his service life. These large sized helmets really are getting scarce now. NOTE Display stand and head are not included but are available separately.
