    Default M42 SS Camo - EF66 Lot # 3035

    This is one I bought from Bill Shea 17 or 18 years ago, long before the web-site! We would hear on the grape vine that a new list was in the works, and had to wait for the Postman to deliver a paper catalogue! No pictures, just a description and a price! This one is complete with a steel banded liner, dark but still pliable leather, and a shortened chin strap. It is a subtle camo scheme, with mostly greens and reds. The EF decal took a few inopportune hits, but it is what it is. Anyway, I recall that it took about a week to arrive. When it did, I showed it to Al Barrows. To my surprise, and delight, he knew the helmet well - he had owned it in the 1970's! I still don't have the hang of taking pictures that do justice to these helmets, but anyway, here it is. Hope you like it. Jim G.

    What stress there must have been waiting for a new catalog to arrive. Great helmet.

    Great helmet Jim.
    I knew you had to have a camo SS helmet somewhere.
    Always nice to have one that the decal has been apply over the camo.

    Just saw this one on GHW2.
    I really like the subtle camo paint on this one Jim.
    Like I said over there, I can't imagine the suspense of ordering a helmet based
    on a description alone, and then waiting patiently to see what arrives.
    I am sure you were very pleased when you opened the box.

    Hi Brad, That was part of the fun, like waiting for Christmas morning after having mailed your list to Santa a month before the big day! I got lucky on this one because Billy's list arrived at my house a day or 2 before it arrived at the home of one of my collector friends, who also called as soon as he saw it, but fortunately for me, too late. I guess in many instances timing is everything! Anyway, I'm glad you like it. Best regards, Jim G.

    Love this one Jim , i also remember the days when all you got was a paper list with description on it then the lid was sent for perusal then people started producing a catologue with photos in it , really high tech !!

    Hi Rene, Yes, it is a factory applied textbook EF decal, what's left of it that is. Jim G.
