    Default Luftschutz Gladiator-2 peice?

    Hello Gents,
    Grabbed this on a lark. Appears to be a 2 piece gladiator. Comes from Germany, seems more along the lines of "artificially aged" rather then denazified. What do you guys think?. Any black paint was definitely the cover layer. wear is inconsistent with use or storage. The seam near the ear area seems to have been very neatly executed? Do not know if that is of any consequence just something I noticed. Just looking for overall input.
    Thanks
    General Putnam

    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

    It appears to have been de-nazified and then repainted. Perhaps used post war in demolition or removal of destroyed buildings and rubble? NH

    weird part is there is no decal under the black paint, overpaint must have adhered to the surface where the decal used to be.

    Hi, a decent gladiator helmet considering it has had an over paint stripped back. I would be thinking along the same lines as Neil about the lack of a decal. Leon.
