    Can someone please tell me what this stamp means. The helmet is stamped on the inside rim 'bk2 2079'. Is that possible? as far as i can tell from research there should be a makers code and the size and possibly a production run.number. If so then what is bk2?

    Any ideas?

    many thanks

    probably the maker stamp which would be ckl or hkp followed by the size , below that should be the lotnr.

    Iv just bought this sd m42 luftwaffe helmet and iv checked the chinstrap and the code is RBNr/0390/0204. is this a repro? it looks and smells old. no new leather or chemical smell but that code is bothering me.

    Thanks Sir payne, but the code RBNr/0390/0204 is a well known repro. It should have been 0202 at the end not 0204. I've researched on the net and in books. The net says that 0204 is always a repro and the books i have dont have 0204 in at all. only 0202.
    Do you know if RBNr/0390/0204 is an original period code?
    Many thanks

    That's a pretty convincing strap, if its a fake.
