    Default SS Helmet Opinions

    Hello All, I think I have been going about selling my SS helmet the wrong way. I would like to have an expert opinion on this helmet.

    This is a helmet from the Demjansk area of Russia. I has not been in the ground, it was inside of an old abandoned house picked up by a farmer in 2007 I bought it from hil the same year. I did not see him pickit up but I do not think he would have been able to make a fake like this.

    The helmet is stamped ET66 on the left side inside the rim it is stamped 4390 on the inside center rear of the rim

    One of the few one looker relic/barn find SS I have ever seen, the lot number and maker certainly help. This is easily a good one.

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.

    The area it was found in was where the Totenkopf division's group Simon fought. The village was named something like "Kirolischniwa" I am spelling it phonetically and I am sure I am butchering the name. There were about 10 occupied houses and maybe 4 or 5 abandoned buildings dilapidated almost to the ground. I have photos from the area if I can get some time I will post them.

    The village is likely gone now, but I have an old German military map of the pocket somewhere that I will post for you if I can find it. It may be marked on there, in which case you could compare it to a modern map and plot the position. I had a helmet from the same rough area near to Eicke group, now residing in Dan's safe hands in Australia. btw Dan if you ever sell that one I want first refusal on it mate
