    Default My New M42 Luft...good I hope!

    Hi All.
    Just picked up this M42 today.
    The helmet almost looks unissused as the leather has no staining or damage of any kind
    Inside is stamped ET64 Thale with a lot number 2627.
    The strap is marked SCHIELE LOBURG 1940 and the decal is the 2nd pattern bird.
    My question is the M42 was brought into production in or around july of 1942 and mine is marked 1940?
    Were earlier straps used on the M42 helmets?.
    I,m not very good clued up on alot of aspects in this hobbie lol.
    Any comments on my helmet would be appericated.
    Rgds To all.
    Peter

    Early straps are found on later helmets. Not usually a concern. Just like older straps can be found on early lids due to replacement and such. This looks like a very nice helmet.

    Fantastic Lufty lid which is 100% original. Chinstrap date isnt a problem as it a piece that can be added from new or old stock when the helmet was build.

    G. Schiele Loburg is a very common fake chinstrap marking. I have never been good with chinstraps, so I won't try to form an opinion on this one. I'd wait for others to chime in.

    Mo is correct that maker is a common fake, but I'm comfortable with this one. I feel like I have seen this helmet somewhere, recently.
