    While it is a good book, it is not the be all and end all ( even the author says that )
    It is just one book in the collectors arsenal and it won't specifically identify what your helmet once was - just what it may have been...... within one lot ( and we don't know how many helmets were in a lot ) there could have been Heer, Luftwaffe, police, kriegsmarine, SS ... who really knows?

    Hi Aaron,

    Here are the codes, these don't come up very often that's for sure.

    Did that manufacturer marked the size and lot number in this arrangement? Most of the time I see size markings on the right temple and production numbers in the middle.

    Yes Quist began this practice on the M40 helmet.

    Wouldn't it just, no sadly....just a nicely aged quality replica which was sold as such to offset overall cost a little.

    Fair enough, you really would have done well if it was genuine.
