    Default Need help to identify 4 german helmets

    Here is my 4 relic german combat helmets.. But I have no idea if they are M35's, M40's or M42's.

    I've used the German Helmets Quick ID Identify Charts but they all look the same to me...

    Closer photos needed please. Of the airvents and the inside lip of the helmet rim.

    I like your display on the stones!

    Better photos of the helmet rims and the ventilation holes are needed here...I'm pretty sure the 3rd helmet down is an M42, judging by the rim...

    SS Helmet - M35

    Wehrmacht Helmet 1 - M40

    Wehrmacht Helmet 2 - M40

    Wehrmacht Helmet 3 - M42

    Great displays though! The relics on the stones with the odd decoration scattered around is very effective.

    Thanks! Are u sure that wehmacht helmet 1 and 2 is M40's? I was told that one of them were a M35 but can't remember which one..

    Thanks, I came up with the ideas about the stones myself ^^

    I'm not a helmet person so I hold my hands up if I'm wrong but to my knowledge the M40 had an air vent moulded as part of the helmet, the raised edge of which can be seen on the Wehrmacht helmets 1 and 2.

    The M35 had an airvent but here was a seperately applied rim which as you can see on the SS lid, is missing.

    Are you sure the SS is an M35 or 40? I think I see an outwardly bent rim... Bit its still hard to call on that one. The first two Heer helmets are M35, and the 3rd Heer is an M42. Monuir, can you take a picture of the inside edge of the SS, and also the other sides vent hole?

    The SS is an M35 as the entire airvent (which was a seperate press-fit piece) is missing. This situation is not possible with either an M40 or M42 as the airvent is a part of the shell.
