    Default Luftwaffe no-decal Q64

    Hi all, picked this one up at Farnham militaria fair on Sunday morning. I've been conscious of a 'hole' in the collection (needing a Luftwaffe no-decal to fill it) for quite a while and saw one on Chris Sadler's website (CS Militaria:- CS Militaria )

    It has a slight factory rim defect and wanted to have a look in hand to make sure I didn't mind it (I didn't). As I was looking at it Chris (great guy to deal with by the way ) mentioned that it was the Q no-decal in Brian Ice's late-war helmets book. As it happens I have the book and had been obsessing (sad I know ) over this very helmet for a while! Walked away with it rather pleased.

    It's a Q64 with Lot number DN 355, which sits pretty much bang on the Aug 43 decal drop area. The leather liner is RB marked and dated 7-43, it is still very supple, probably never oiled. When I can I'll see if I can see a date etc on the band, though it's quite tight.

    Regards, Paul

    Thanks all! It's been a fairly long chase for a Luftwaffe no-decal, finding it was published was an nice bonus.

    Best regards, Paul

    Nice...unissued? No chinstrap and liner string-doesnt look like there ever was. Only stacking wear and staining to the leather. A fine lid by any standards! Good job picking it up!
