    Default 2 Q64 helmets....different eras.

    Here is my Q64 SD luft, side by side with a Q64 BGS helmet.

    Unless you know, you could turn the BGS into a "wartime" one.

    Major difference with the BGS. There is no batch No on the rear skirt, its only marking is Q64, and I beleive the vent hole is slightly larger on the BGS. Chinstrap is different on this BGS and the liner has some differences.The names and ranks are on the BGS liner.

    The BGS is the one with the chinstrap over the lip, the M40's chinstrap I am trying to look after!!

    You can see the rolled edges are still to a high quality, and I am sure the same metal was used. I have a later made BGS with no vent holes, or liner pins (dome mounted liner) and the rolled edge is badly done! I have added a coupla pics of the later version BGS to show this the later BGS has the maker and No on the rear skirt. One photo shows all three......

    Sorry about my staffy's kennel and her Hannah montanna doonah.....

    About two months ago i was at a car boot sale with the wife, she went through the money like wildfire buying things that will end up in the cupboard, we came to a stall and i looked in one of the boxes on the floor, at the bottom was a really nice three piece luftschutz with name , sticker to the rear and a pretty good looking decal and chinstrap, did i have the money, did i heck, the chap was asking £25, i could have killed the missus what with all the old tat she bought, im standing there with this thing in my hand and a bloke next to me asked to see it, he looked ,asked me if i was buying, which i had to say no, pulled his wallet out and gave over the money, then had the bloody cheek to say ,"you missed out on that one, mate" and walked off, then to add injury to insult the wife chimes in with" its only a bit of metal, there,ll be another one around somewhere" the stallholder looked at me and shrugged his shoulders and said " they dont understand do they" I thought i would say something but i was gobsmacked ,i just walked away muttering to myself

    Ive had a few chances to buy the Luftschutz helmets but something always seems to get in the way, whether it be money , circumstances or wrong place etc, i should have bought these when i was much younger they were only about £5-10 thirty years ago
