    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Nice, tiny transitional! The stamp in the liner leather almost looks like 1933, not 1931.

    I have an issue with the Heer decal , I fear it is a bad one Paul.
    The tricolor looks dug so the other one was probably too and maybe restored.

    The chinstrap is also a hybrid it seems as these really early lids have the rollerbuckle straps. This one has a part of that but the other part also seems added more recently than WW2.

    Here's how such a strap should look. Also on an M18 DD Heer with very early 1931 hardware. Often they are broken as they are fragile on one side.
