    Nice early lid.
    Yes there was a canted Swastika on the other side.

    Here is a similar helmet with "correct" metal shields. The shields are real, but not original to this helmet. The swastika shield should be in the "mobile" orientation, but the pins on the shield didn't match up with the holes in the shell so as to permit the shield to be oriented properly. These early Police helmets with the metal shields are relatively rare, and most, like yours, are missing the swastika shield. Unfortunately, real swastika shields are rarer than hens' teeth, so it may be hard to find one for your piece. Keep you eyes open at shows, you may get lucky. Jim G.
