    Pictures 1 to 4 show the general aspcts of the helmet.
    Picture 5 shows the underside od the chin strap stud
    Picture 6 shows the liner detail and manufacturer's label. The label appears to show the date of manufacture??

    Any ideas or comments welcome!!
    Thank you once again Michael Ryan

    Period item but not sure if it is military - people wore those after the war as well - riding bikes or as winter hats.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Hi again Meyle, I does not look military but 1941 intrigues me. Is it a date or a stock number or what?? Cheers MR

    Production date perhaps - civilian item I guess

    Hi kradman, Thank you for your observations. The size is, as you rightly say, an ink stamp. However, the date is actually woven into the label.
    Cheers Michael R

    If you look up GA Hoffmann they did make peak caps in the war for the German forces and also flying helmets so maybe this hat is ok ,Could be a item made for that first cold winter in Russia
