Article about: I have had this helmet for about 10 years. It is the only one I currently have. It is the only one I can afford at the moment but it is worth much more to me than the monitary value.

    Very nice Luftschutz, two piece helmet with a good decal, and nice label , shame theres no liner but you could get a decent civic liner and install it if you wanted to

    Lovethe helmet, the off centre decal gives it that human touch, this helmet could speak volumes about it's former owner, it has a character that Would appeal to me more than perfectly correct examples, I like items that show the human element.

    Thank you all for the complements! DougB I have been trying hard to find some helmets around where I live in attics, closets, and garage sales. Pickings are slim (none heh) but it is hard to discourage me. The search will go on and I will post my treasure as soon as I find it!

    Regards

    Hi Rene, i think that the three piece helmet had four liner pins and a definate seam with small rivets on the outside, this one shown has three liner pins with no seam showing on the outside nor under the paintwork, according to my references its a two piece, but i could be wrong
