This is a German M42 Stahlhelm with a gray woodchip camouflage paint that may be post-war applied. The exterior has an overall rough texture with some scattered flaking. The interior is turning to a dull brown patina with scattered oxidation and some light flaking. The rear skirt is marked "EF64/2877" indicating manufacture by Eisenhuttenwerk. The M31 liner may be a reproduction, it has a couple small tears and some dust staining. The chinstrap appears original but it is broken in the center, it shows some crazing and dust staining. An interesting German helmet overall. (207879-440CZ) [Craig Brown Collection] (/) SOLD FOR $230.00
