    Hi Guys, here is a helmet I picked up around 1990 after the fall of the DDR. Cost me 20 back then and I found it in an Army surplus shop.

    I think these are still very under rated by many collectors. I like the price decal for 8 Reichmarks found inside.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi James, the liner is the usual type. Decals can change towards a more golden hue due to age toning of the lacquer.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Very nice helmet! Thanks for the tip about the decal. I recently purchased a Luftschutz and was concerned over the golden hue of the decal. I feel better now.
