    I got this helmet in Norway, out of the woodwork, in May 2008. Apparently unissued, it never had a chinstrap as far as I can tell.

    Unissued and absolutely new. Wow...if I would have seen this out and about, the first thought would have been "Man! This has Got to be a repro!". What an awesome KM! I totally agree with Doug-it Has to be one of the best out there anywhere!

    Here are a couple of more shots of it. You can see the rusty patches and scuff marks. It was found laying on a street outside a naval barracks in May, 1945, in Brevik, Norway (near Porsgrunn). The blemishes may be damage from it being pitched out a window or something.

    Here it is side by side with a lot number mate (DN110). Note how worn the finish is on the medic helmet.
