    Default 1934 German Luftschutz "gladiator style" fire police helmet

    Hello all

    The helmet in the pictures came up on one of our auctions lately. It has the makings of being a 1934 German Luftschutz "gladiator style" fire police helmet but I am no expert wrt these kind of helmets. Considering the horrid and ruff over-paints this lid must have had an interesting life to say the least.

    Is it what it appears to be and if so, would it be possible or even worthwhile to try to remove the top paint coats ? The seller wants about $75 which I think is a bit high.

    Regards

    Andrew

    I think that one is fire brigade not Luftschutz and it's not the gladiator type.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    This is an M34 Civic/Fire Helmet, not the "Gladiator"...I suggest you save your money, but that's my opinion...

    Hello Chaps

    Well, I passed on this helmet at auction. It really was a sad looking lid and not worth the time and effort attempting to "restore" it. Thank-you for your input, much appreciated.
