A nice combat vet. We will never know but my vote would be that the decal was removed by the soldat during the War, either to make his head less conspicuous and/or to comply with the 1943 regulations regarding the elimination of decals on combat helmets. Jim G.
I agree with Jim. Looks like a nice standard combat lid
A nice authentic combat helmet that shows all the attributes of a real un-messed with piece. Leon.

A good looking helmet sir.
Agree nice original helmet. timothy
The soldiers were told to remove the decals if i recall correctly now, If im right then i would believe this was an order from OKW.
Edit: I see Helmet2ID wrote this already, im getting old....
Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.
