    the manufacturer looks like ckl on the rear skirt...... which is a late war code for the eisenhutten thale (et) factory.

    Good eye, and the decal is correct, with the dimple in the talon of the eagles left foot. Jim G.

    This is a really nice single decal Heer M42. This helmet is a late-war model, manufactured in 1943 most likely.

    It's clearly a hkp shell with the correct eagle. Nice original helmet.
