Heer M42 Single Decal hkp64 helmet
I thought I would show my Heer M42 by Saechsische Emaillier u. Stanzwerke of Lauter (SE or hkp).
I looked for a fair while before I was offered this one, it is out of the Terry Goodapple collection (thanks Terry).

Very clean example, well done Bob.
Another beauty Bob, the decal has held up very well on the granulated finish. We see so many where the decal has "flaked" off from that type of finish, great find, Leon.

Near perfect condition Bob.
My dream...hkp and brand new condition...

You're killing me Bob. In 50 years of collecting, this was one of only a handful of helmets I bought directly from the vet. You caught me in a weak moment with that trade and I miss that helmet a lot. I know you're taking good care of it but send it back home some day!
