    Default Is this a "Himmler" helmet?

    At first I hope, you had nice christmas days.
    The helmet below was bought from an antiques dealer in Dachau.
    I took several pics and I hope, you would give me your opinions.
    Ther is no smell of leather left, no maker marks,just "Barth & Wagawa,..., Dresden"
    stamped in the liner. This helmet is similar to the one in Kelly Hicks famous book ,
    that the guard is wearing. I found the same producer at the inside of an RZM-helmet.
    Are there many producers known in this period?
    Thank you

    Greetings from germany

    My only observation is that the liner looks extremely minty. Can't comment on anything else.

    I agree the liner doesnt seem to match the look of the helmet. I would hesitate to say the same about the chinstrap as well just from these pics.

    It is a "Himmler" style helmet and I think the liner is period. I like the piece. Jim G.

    In my opinion, a very nice helmet with a VERY nice, original liner.

    Agree with Jim, a good Himmler and appears in top condition too. Nice commercially produced intrawar helmet.

    Thank you all. I am glad to hear that.
    The only thing, that is a little bad, is the blackened name on the liner.
    But here in germany anything related to this topic is nearly banned, so I can understand this.

    I got news. I asked the seller, Cornelius Wittmann Antiquitäten,to whom the helmet belonged.
    Today I got the answer. It is from a family from Dachau. He did not tell me the name, but I think it
    could be possible "SS-Sturm Dachau"-member. I just could not read it, it is blackened .
