    Default Helmet Afrika Corps, Need Heelp

    Hi guys,

    I need your help. I have a helmet, Africa should be. The leather was probably times replaced in 1962 I think. It looks as if the helmet at the origin had a different color. The helmet is back stamped. Other stamps are not to be found. Is this an original helmet? What is your opinion about the helmet

    Fake bad liner, paint and tricolor on m42
    only shell looks orginal

    Liner is Bundeswehr ( perforated brow ) with a repaint and repro decals.The alloy liner band is strangely rivetted??? and in any case is wrong for a M42. Chinstrap also later ( flat double rivets ) ...... all in all as Helldude says, only the shell is good.

    As already mentioned, this is a total post war put together item with only the metal shell being original, liner, paint, decals etc all post war and/or fake.

    Hi, May I suggest that you view anything suposedly pre 1945 that bears a number 8405 12 1234567 or similar with the utmost suspision. The number that I have detailed is a NATO Codification Reference and represents 8405 (clothing) 12 (NATO country of origin code [not necessarily the country of manufacture] for the Federal Republic of Germany) and the seven digit number, often broken into 3 dash 4 digits (item specific reference number)
    8110-99- UK Tyres if my memory serves me
    8405-00- or 01- US and even our brothers from down under, 7105-66- Australia Barrack Equipment

    Hope this is of some help for you when viewing perportedly WWII bits

    Cheers Michael Ryan
