    Nah.
    I picked it up 40 years ago if I remember right. I have owned several. Sold or traded off the others.

    No.
    Ship designation usually marked on inside flange of helmet in paint aboard ship.
    They are very rare. Not many shipboard helmets survived. I have handled 2 in my lifetime both in private collections dave. Hope I have helped educate you a little bit.

    I should have mentioned for those that havn't had the privilige of serving in the Navy or Marines, Ships designation means the ship number.

    Great helmet Steve.
    It does not look like it was used that much.
    probably was pick-up very soon after it was issue.
    Any info where it was pick-up.

    Chris as well as I can remember I got it from an artillery veteran Bill Hicks with a bunch of other stuff. I think he said he picked it up in Cherborge. He was quite a pack rat. I also got a city police shako, a double decal model 34 civic police helmet ( near mint condition ) and a shit load of medals & tinnies and some stuff from camp Dora at Nordhausen.
    Oh yea and a package of WWII German coffee.

    I have 50 or more nazi helmets, stopped counting a long time ago, and have handled countless numbers over the 47 years I have been seriously collecting and studying them. Of course I am not always right either.
    Just wanted to know.
    Gloves are still on here.

    I would love to have more, I just don't have the money. At the moment I will just have to be happy with the few that I have now. Until I have money I will just continue to study them.
