    Default Gladiator "Luftschutz" helmet

    Hello,
    I think about selling this helmet. May I ask you about your opinion about it (the "Luftschutz" insignia is complete) please? Maybe you have an idea about the stamp marking/the meaning of the abbreviation in the liner (last photo)?

    Hi , I think this is a great looking original helmet (apart from the bit of tissue stuck on the swastika!) Leon.

    The liner marking is interesting,never saw that before on a luftschutz, looks like NSDAP, most likely an issue stamp to a certain area, kinda neat.

    Good original nice condition LS liner mark is different as stated probably NSDAP stamp for certain district of Gau. I have seen one other with a similar mark I would think quite uncommon for LS. timothy

    Dear all,
    Thank you very much for your expert opinion!! Yes, it's an authentic helmet. My father and I found it by clearing an attic of an old tenement in Wiesbaden/Germany about 45 years ago.
