    Sizes ranged from 60 to 68. I guess some 70 size are known too but I have never seen one. Smallest I have seen is 62 so this new to me. You will be asked to provide a clear, straight on shot of the Heer decal. Initially, it looks good to me. Others need to chime in. NH

    Hi, I cannot be 100% sure from these images, but I think the decals are ok, the liner however looks like it may be a replacement as it appears to be in much better order than the steel? Leon.

    70 is "common" compared to the 72 and 74.

    The front left liner pin looks like one of those post war ones (not repros but refurbishment ones (hope ive written it well)).
    The leather is repleced at best IMO, since the pins and the liner like this should not belong onto a early helmets (ALU 1st or 2nd model liner and brass pins) but the lot number can tell unless its a reissue.

    Leonardo, Good Lord! A 74 must look like a Darth Vader helmet! Never heard of those sizes. On this 60 example, the split pins do look unusual. The paint does suggest a re-issue. Once again, I think some better photos of the Heer decal will be helpful. NH

    Is it an M42? Because then it would look like a monster...

    I have only one '62' in my collection and IMO it looks silly against the 64s and 66s due to its small size. Putting it on my head it sits there on top like a clown hat. To me, a 60 would look like a joke in my collection. Unless someone has the urge to collect 'all sizes, all branches' etc, then I wouldn't be encouraging a '60' purchase. Just MHO of course...

    Do you collect to dress up or is originality most important ?
    The size discussion is 'the joke' to me.
    To each his own and let's just discuss originality.
    The size discussion is just plain boring and unimportant. I have all sizes 62-68 and there is not one clown on my shelves.
