Nice Score, friend! Lots of action around Metz in 1944, as I'm sure you already know...
An "Honest" Stahlhelm...
Good looking M 40 in very nice original shape.
Hi, a super looking HEER M40 in un-molested condition as you pointed out, well done. Leon.

very nice , varnishing is a practice since long banished from collecting as is treating the leather.
Searching for information, material and items of RAD "Hessen-Süd" (where my father was probably in K-Einsatz, combat engagement, in the Alps in 1945), IR 87 (where my grandfather was during campaign in France in 1940), Gardegrenadierregiment Nr. 3 "Königin Elisabeth" (where my grand-uncle was at Craonne/Chemin des Dames in France in 1917)
looks to be an EF / Fulda produced M40 with a HJ&K decal.
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
That is a fantastic and complete helmet. Thank you for sharing!
