SS M42 for review

Article about: It's tough to determine the finish of this helmet via photos. It should be the same finish as the ET M40s. ET started using a different paint when they started coding their helmets 'ckl'.

    Hi Allan , it looks as though a shield was scratched off from this one to me so I would guess it was a single decal HEER helmet at some point. A shame it was not left alone as it would have been a nice helmet. Leon.
    If this is the heer helmet, shouldnt the decal be on the other side? There are no signs of anything on the other side.

    Lets see... so far, M42 shells which probably did not have factory SS decals:

    ET marked M42
    qvL/bvL marked M42
    Quist M42.....

    Hi Allan , quite right , I wasn't paying attention!! The lot number suggests it may have once been a single decal HEER ,the only thing that is a certainty is that this is a fake SS decal so the helmet has unfortunately been messed with. Leon.
