    Shame the mekings are not clearer, can you make out any letters neaqr the 6, thats where the manufacturer code would be, the markings on the rear of the skirt is the batch number. It is a M42, a modification in manufacturing of the earlier M35 and M40 helmets, basicaly a simplification in the making process, these are mid war issue, usually with only a single decal.

    Hi, Mountaineer.

    It looks like a good shell, as mentioned.
    That might be '66' on the rim.

    Please post your other finds...........!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Thanks for the info guys. I don't collect WWII german militaria, but no one else at the auction except one person was bidding. I also got two buckles and a medallion. I will try to post pics of them.
