M34 luftschutz helmet good or bad.

Article about: It isn't an M34. What strikes me is that it has a similar construction to the M16/17. I would guess it is a prototype or transitional helmet of some sort. Maybe a prototype of the M34 or (I'

    It looks OK to me mate, I've only had one of these decals though. Overall the lid looks untouched I think.

    Is this a sale or auction? They look like typical auction house pics. I think the liner and strap are good. A shame the carbine hook end is missing the leather and buckle. I Think the decal might be ok but it has been a while since I have looked at the Luftshutz decal database on GHW.

    Oh on. Typically this is what you get from auctions and you have to email them and specifically ask for the pics of the areas you want to see. I hope you get a good deal on it.

    Hummm, 3 rivets. One must be for the chinstrap.... Very odd, I've not seen this before on an M34 either, you have a knack for finding odd ones Chris! I'd be pretty tempted if the price was right.
