M42 bordered decal police helmet! Looks nice!
Ok thanks. Do you know if this is rare?
Welcome to the Forum, friend...It is indeed a scarce and desirable M42 double-decal Police-issued helmet, Liner size 57, complete and showing minimal use...
Looks like a correct M42 EF66/64 with original eagle and tricolor and awesome liner/chinstrap.
Nice minty police helmet. Really nice.....and complete! Keep it stored properly!
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

I'm still looking for one of these! But with decals in better condition. Take it out of the attic and place it on a high shelf away from curious hands, out of direct sunlight and in a climate controlled room with neutral humidity and temperature. In that environment it will last for decades to come. Attics are not the place for helmets. Also, as for the EF mark, the numbers are there just hard to read. By late war the stampings were not as strong and deep into the metal as they were early on. Perfectly fine.
