M42. The decals look poor and they should not be on both sides.
Whatever its just an opinion.
Not a real ss, but nice helmet other than that
ok thanks for the answers
M42 but the SS "stuff" is postwar.
Looks to have been a nice no-decal M42, that's been poorly dolled up post war sadly.
yeah a double decal M42 is unheared off
Now thats strange ....
I picked this helmet up in Arnhem in 1986 ...
It was not brought as an SS helmet, and in fact, I did not see where the flashes had been removed till I got back to my hotel.
On talking to some Dutch friends, examples like this have been known to be associated with the Dutch SS volunteers ...
.. As of yet though, I have seen no photographic evidence to support this.
The flashes on mine are on both sides, and seem to have been painted through a template.
The helmet is an ET62 and the batch number looks like 2138.
