NSKK helmet

Article about: I am in the process of purchasing this NSKK motorcycle helmet. I am fairly sure of it being a period piece but just want a second opinion. What would the condition be considered as? Thanks,

    Always nice to see these helmets. It must be one for the SA.

    NSKK helmets practically always do have a white tag in the inside, saying
    Sturzhelm nach Vorschrift des NSKK. Carl Busse from Mainz was a
    mayor contractor for the RZM and was licenced with L6/3. The "L" stands
    for Leder (leather). Their RZM-permission was revoked September 15, 1937.

    Most helmets you will find for the NSKK do have the number L6/1, which stands
    for the concern of Hans Römer from Neu-Ulm.

    Most NSKK helmets do have in the inside also a unit-stamp. Simply while
    most helmets for a unit were property of the unit and when not needed it
    was stocked in their building.

    I own an early style (rolling swas) property marked to a motorbrigade Kurpfalz-Saar. It has no tag or any evidence of having had one, is that a concern?

    Nice crash helmet. I like the distinctive shape of these.

    Nigel: not a problem. The timeframe is correct.

    The use of the RZM tag was since 1936 and as told in the 1936 manufacturing-regulations.

    In April 1935 the Motor-Bigade Kurpfalz was renamed as Kurpfalz-Saar,
    which became a Motorgruppe as January 30, 1938. With the date February 1, 1941 it was
    renamed as Westmark.

    Could you photograph the stamp, please?

    Is there by any chance a logo for the manufacturer, possibly beneath the
    leathered inner? Just curious!

    The interior is completely absent of markings with the exception of 2 random pencil marks. There is an orange rubber pad at the front--very dry/flakey.

    Can you show an exterior shot of your helmet Nigel?
