    This is the "Lot #". It is on every helmet and denotes the batch of steel used to produce that "batch" of helmets.

    It is for quality control.

    Collectors use it for a variety of reasons.

    For a quick but accurate and informative primer on German helmets, I recommend you read through this website (maintained by member Schwerpunkt).

    Pay close attention to the Helmet 101 section

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated
