    As I heard one guy found the similar helmet (left) in Latvia, and someone told that this is model 44, is it?

    I would like to see a photo of your friend's helmet.

    This one was produced in 1944 (IKA44 rivets) but it is called the B/II prototype. Some also call it the M45. M45 is a label that has been applied to both helmets.

    Has anyone ever seen a pre-May 1945 photo of this helmet? I have read descriptions of it before and seen one or two others photographed in collections. It would make for a fascinating display with a Liebermuster cammo uniform!

    A similar one to this but with ventilation holes and single decal was sold, a couple of months ago, on ebay at a real crazy crazy price....Has anyone seen this auction?
