    Default Model 40 navy / coastal artillery helmet

    This is a text book example of model 1940 navy / coastal artillery helmet marked EF 64 Manufacturer Emaillerwerk AG Fulda.
    Model 40 and 42 navy / coastal artillery were painted a fine grained ( aluminium oxide mixed in paint ) slate grey color with an applied gold decal. Note the sparkle in the gold. This thin winged decal is found on EF helmets. The chinstrap is is marked Heinrich Shone KG and dated 1941. Navy helmets usually had a ship or boat marking on the inside of the helmet. This leads me to believe that this particular helmet is coastal artillery.
    Thought you folks would like to see a hard to find naval / coastal artillery helmet.

    Hello Steve , by the looks of it a nice thin winged KM adler.
    However I have to disagree with your statement that the helmet was painted for the KM. It's the standard EF factory paint as found on Heer and KM helmets.
    What's the lotnr of the helmet ?

    I've heard coastal artillery helmets were painted black. Any truth to that? If so, I assume that was done in the field?

    The paint is typical for any Heer or Kriegsmarine helmet. It is a good KM though. I like it.

    I have seen helmet that were painted black for flak teams, but not necessarily for coastal artillery. I think that it would be safe to say that any KM helmet with a 2 or 3 tone camo would more than likely be coastal artillery. Other than that, factories did not paint helmets differently for different purposes other than Luftwaffe blue, early SS and police black, and perhaps a couple of others.

    This is the best picture I can get.
    Here is a photo.
    I did forget to mention the rough texture green grey for KM helmets.

    Just a few. But you don't need to own many helmets to study them. You just have to handle and look at as many as you can.

    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.
