Check the decal closely - something looks too fresh about it to me ......

Looks like someone used whiteout to cover some spots. Dealer says this is a vet pickup. Lid looks good, and to me the decal looks ok.....not a pro on luftschutz decals. Guy wants 450 us, so better be real.
good beaded m42 shell and decal.
M42 beaded helmet with luftschutz are rare.
But the price is high for it.
From the picture the chinstrap looks like it is all there.
Just asking to learn something here!
Is the chin strap made of plastic/rubber?
It looks clear to me.
Agree with Chris that's a rare m42 with decal even harder to come by I am not up to the modern prices seems steep. timothy
An unusual helmet not often seen, as the chaps have already said though, the price is very high but that's up to you I guess! Leon.
