Need some opinions on my named Heer Helmet...

Article about: That's a good point Frank, like to see that closer. It could be from an initial lose fit, causing the leather to fray from wear and splaying. Thats what it looks like. I think it's just the

    Default Need some opinions on my named Heer Helmet...

    Hi all,

    I received this helmet with a Kriegsmarine uniform today (also posted the Kriegsmarine uniform for options earlier). I'd like to get your thoughts on it. The rivets need to be tightened (they're loose), but I don't believe the liner was replaced. If you feel otherwise, please let me know. Let me know what you guys think.

    A very nice Heer helmet my friend!
    A good helmet indeed IMO! Nice decal to according to a few of mine.
    It's a m40 right or?

    A nice helmet I would have in my collection.
    The liner doesn't seem like it have been replaced to my eyes.

    Thanks Normandie! I think this is an M42, no? Do you know whether or not the personalization (the soldier's name clearly written on the liner) generally increase the value?

    It is without a doubt an M42, as it has the tell tale stamped vent holes and flared out rim.

    Something about the liner seems fishy to me... Yes, I would say that the name does add a little bit to the value, but not much. It's extremely common for helmets to be named.

    Hi Joe. Thanks for your reply. Would you be more specific regarding what is fishy about the liner? Thanks!

    Sorry to be so vague!

    I don't know the proper terms, but It doesn't look like your liner is the proper fit...

    Compare to mine:

    I'm wondering why the heads of the liner split pins are so exposed compared to normal ones????
    And I cant see the size stamp on a tongue ......

    As stated, the name doesn't add up so much more value, though it's very cool to have!
    To me the liner doesn't seem like it's been replaced, just warn.. but I'm not 100% sure.

    The entire helmet is fine to my eyes. Looks like a nice M42 Heer helmet. Dan is right though its strange how much the liner leather pins stick out so much.

    Out of interest does the liner feel thick or thin?

    The liner has probably been taken out at sometime and either it's a replacement or it has been put back badly, as it's hard to get the pins to sit tight if they have been messed with.

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.
