    I suspect that it was a factory guard helmet. I do not know which factory had the initials HF but I would guess that it would be fairly easy to research. I bought a no decal one piece luftschutz with the late war clothe type liner and plastic chinstrap in a small junk shop in North Carolina about 20 years ago, and it had in red paint on the skirt "BMW", for $5.00! The red paint had been on the piece FOREVER and I think that mine was also a factory guard helmet. If you do find a factory with those initials, please let us know. Anyway, just my 2 cents on the meaning of the mark, which if my wife is to be believed, are probably not worth a penny. Jim G.

    'Heinkel Flugzeugwerke' is a possibility, although I'm not sure if they would have used that logo.

    I am having trouble downloading pictures of my helmet. When I succeed, if think you will be amazed - same inscription, "BMW 2", same red paint, same bad penmanship. Now I am sure that these are BMW factory guard helmets. If you are at all willing, I would love to buy yours. I really like having double examples of odd ball pieces. I will keep trying to load the pics of mine. Cheers, Jim G.
