    I'd say it's a good, authentic heer (german army) helmet. It appears to be an M40 (the vents are stamped into the metal and not a separate piece). The vet you obtained it from must have neglected it after the war... hence the rust.

    The liner is marked with the soldier's rank and last name... Gross?

    09996 may be a feldpost number! If so, you can tell what unit the soldier served in and where he saw action.

    The helmet was made by Quist and is a size 64. Lot number is: 992?

    FPN 09996:

    (1.2.1941-11.7.1941) 2. Kompanie Fla-Bataillon 612,
    (1.8.1943-23.3.1944) 6.8.1943 gestrichen, (Tunis),
    (7.11.1944-Kriegsende) 29.11.1944 Stab I, Versorgungs-Zug u. 1.-4. Kompanie
    Grenadier-Regiment 585,
    (7.11.1944-Kriegsende) 19.3.1945 gestrichen.

    My guess is that it was picked up in Tunis. A very nice helmet.

    wow thanks for the information on the helmet i think i gotb a real bargin there,,does anyone know if u can find out the name of who the helmet belonged to??

    It appears that the name is written above the feldpost number along with the soldier's rank. I am not up to snuff with German rank abbreviations and German script, but the name of the soldier appears to be Gross or Grott.

    Is that not an M35? could just be the pic, but it looks like a riveted air vent, IMHO. Cool helmet for sure!
