    Default SD SS ckl 66 lot # 2892

    This is just a standard M42 SD SS combat helmet. It has what I believe to be a field repaired chin strap assembly that was on it when the collector friend from whom I acquired it bought it at a gun show about 30 years ago. Hope you like it. Jim G.
    PS - I just can't seem to load the pictures in the order that I would like, but anyway, they are all there.

    Buckle side of the strap looks like it is made from a pocketwatch fob strap.
    The other piece might be homemade as there are too many
    off-center holes in it !

    Interesting modification...............

    I like everything about it. The nut on the repaired chinstrap goes very well with this one. Is this for sale?

    Thanks guys, I am glad you like it. I thought the field repaired chinstrap was interesting and was a testament to its use in combat so I decided to post it. Cheers, Jim G.

    nice helmet, the repairs look great, probably a quick eastern front fix, gotta love the lightning bolts.
