    Default My New M42 SD (With Provenance)

    Well guys this one is coming home to my shelf, and marks my 2nd stahlhelm for the collection!

    Picked it up on a local "online only" auction. The auctioneer had it advertised as a WW1 German Helmet. Needless to say he was wrong. It is definitely my best buy to date, and I wish I could buy them all at the price of this one!

    Feel free to comment....good or bad.

    Looks good to me. Nice salty lid but all there! Lets see what others say.

    My question to others in looking at these pictures is if there is maybe a light camo to it? Hard to tell

    And great price!

    Looks ok I think. You can probably provide some better pics when you get it in hand. The liner is interet of though. Has the appearance of ground dug liners in eastern Europe.

    A nice battle worn veteran that would have looked a lot better back in '45 when the GI brought it home ( before it went to live in the barn!!! )

    Glad I can help but only rely on me for the abc's, the rest of the alphabet I'm still learning as well...but for that price it was a great deal any way you look at it.

    LoL...A shame these went out to a shed or musty, damp old basement to spend their lives.

    Is there anything I should do about that liner?

    The lady I talked with at the auction house sent me the photos, originally their was just one photo posted.

    She said that the gentlemen that brought it in to consign told her that he found it in his fathers personal effects, who served in the ETO.

    Its a real shame about the bird though. But I guess whats left is better than nothing

    Glad she didn't claim it came from the PTO...lol..she already listed it as a WW1 lid!

    I would not try to do anything with the liner. When you get it you will then see how pliable it is but my guess it will be quite stiff, so leave it as is and store it correctly. If you are lucky and it is soft, maybe you can stuff the inside with lightly crunched up paper or plastic bags. This may over time bend the to tongues back in shape...may...

    Hard to tell from the pics, but you may have an intact liner,
    with all the fingers. Hopefully, you only paid the price
    of what an original chin strap goes for today !

    Helmet is rough but I think it's ok and may only
    need a wipe down with a slightly
    dampened cloth.........
    Regards,


    Steve.
