    It looks like this lid may have been played with a bit postwar.

    Id Just leave it alone. I might try to rub it with a warm wet cloth to see if it does slip off . its so faded anyway, you can barely see it, so it doesn't stick out too much.

    No it is barely vissible we never no who have done this because the rest of the helmet its oke i think its better to use a breadbag strap on the helmet.

    By 1944 or 1945 still not removed look als the other man a ww1 era helmet and a luftschutz helmet
    Jim was referring to manufacture dates, not the actual time it was worn. Those are two different spectrums.

    That helmet looks to me to be a medium weight bulged vent M34 shell like this one, not an M42. Just my lay opinion. Jim G.

    The colored shields were supposed to be removed in 1940 from what i remember.
    Guard units serving within Germany usually still retained the double decal helmets. The majority of clean double decal SS helmets in collections all have provenance to the LAH barracks in the Obersalzburg.

    Original M-42 as stated made by CKL (ET factory) and this is sometimes poorly stamped worn dies lacking the K as stated post war decal most likely and swaz on front probably also however sometimes Vets painted these on for show I have one with two small swaz painted one on front one on top US Vet done I don't know where your helmet came from so most likely post war somehow. Still a good condition M-42. timothy

    I agree, GI's painted swazi's on helmets I've seen before. The only period painted swazi's ive ever seen were done on WWI helmets by the frei korps. But they were stationary Swazi's. this is just from my limited knowledge.
    I've posted this before, but for reference this is an example of an m35( could be 40) with a painted over shield in the field.
