    Default My M42 Soldier Art Helm

    This is a Q64 M42 DN543 lot number. Based on the locations listed in France and Germany, I suspect this soldier was part of the US 7th Army, 6th Corps, 100th Infantry Division, 398th Infantry Regiment.

    Locations in France: Baccarat, Vosges Mtns., Raon L' Tape, Rimling, Bitche, and Petite Redicher.
    Locations in Germany: Mannheim, Heilbronn, Alfdorf, Lorch, Gmund, and the Harz Mtns.

    A late war excursion from the last 6 months of the war (November 3, 1944 to May 9, 1945).

    Pretty rare helmet, regardless of when the writing may have been done.

    Agree.

    Could you please a larger picture of the Q64 and DN543 shell stamps?

    I would also be curious to know if you can read the liner band maker's stamp.

    I'm actually with Frank on this - the yellow looks a lot like a paint pen and there are smudges .... what the?

    I agree with the others, it does look freshly done the yellow and blue, I don't see any smudges of dirt on it and the smudges
