M42 Army find

Article about: Thanks all. I was thinking of selling this one but now you're making me think I should keep it. I probably have another one I could part with instead!

    Default M42 Army find

    Here's a nice Army M42 with sz 58 liner. I'm not a helmet expert so I'm not sure what the markings tell. There appears to be a name or something inscribed in the marking area of the skirt. I'm still trying to decipher it.

    For not being a helmet expert you sure picked a real beauty.

    Great helmet-not much room to upgrade this one.

    Regarding the lettering inside...

    If as 4md says, it is a "hkp66" then here is what I can tell you...

    hkp - manufacturer's mark (Sachsiche Emailleer und Stanzwerke, Lauter)

    66 - size (large)

    The other, usually three or four digit number refers to the production or batch number (example 3015)

    Regards,

    Carl

    p.s. That is a very nice helmet, well done!
