    Default CKL62 SD M42 Luftwaffe Helmet

    I just happened upon this cheap SD Luftwaffe CKL62 on eBay a few minutes ago. It is super honest; a one look original in my opinion. I usually don't go for them in this condition, but since the price was right I had to. The seller lives only two hours from me, so it shouldn't take too long to get here. I'll upload some better images once I have it in hand.

    According to the seller it was brought back by his great uncle.

    It does look OK from the pics, best for a closer shot of the decal though to be sure. The swas is quite bright compared to the rest of it. Could be the pic or it could have be re-nazified with a fake decal's swas.

    Assuming it checks out when it lands, that's a good eBay find.

    The Eagle has landed!

    I am very relieved to find that it is an original ckl62. The lot number is 2823, so well within the time frame for a SD M42. The liner is surprisingly very very supple. All of the liner fingers are intact, but one hole is broken in one of them. Here are the photos:

    Here is a size comparison with some of my other soon to be parted friends:
    62, 64, 66 You can really see the difference in the 64 and 66, but the 62 looks bigger than it really is due to the flared out edge of the skirt. That kind of surprised me when I first pulled it out of the box, since this is the first 62 M42 I have ever had in hand.

    EDIT: I just checked the liner band and the shell is actually a Size 66, not 62, the liner band is dated 1943 and sized 58. So that explains my surprise. lol
