    The LAH wore the standard issue Waffen SS steel helmet. No difference from those issued to other units.

    By 1943 you would most likely see a single decal example being worn.

    Here is one from my collection, a single decal M40.

    There is a picture in the Ludwig Baer book that I believe he said was from the 1rst SS LAH in Russia that shows double runic decals on what appear to be M35 or M40 shells. Obviously, not all of the 1rst SS had double runic helmets, or far more would have survived the War. Jim G.

    The missing number is just badly stamped. This is not unusual to see. Often these lot numbers do not come out clearly.

    I don't like the white paint etc.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The paint is far too new looking and hides features of the decal.

    Real shell etc. Don't like the chinstrap or loose liner either.

    Cheers, Ade.

    How real would a helmet with fake paint and a fake decal be to you ?

    That would be my sentiments too.

    Ado, save your money for a totally original helmet.

    Cheers, Ade.
