    Default NSDAP helmet / political helmet

    On request a seperate topic about my "new" helmet.

    I,ve found this helmet on quinsidense in a bunch of old miitary stuff. The former owners where no collectors or experts. They had is about 20 or 30 years, so replica is unlikely.

    The decal placement and the Gau stamp in the front as opposed to the rear are the only concerns I have. But the decals look good to me. I would not say these are political leader gladiators.

    The strap is A-OK for a late war gladiator like this. I don't think we have seen enough of these to really have a benchmark to compare to. For me it's 100% legit. It actually matches the one on German-Helmets exactly in configuration.

    Hi Andy, I have had the pleasure of having held 4 of these over the years and this one is right. The placement of the decal on the front brim is odd, but other than that, to me it is 100% correct.

    You're right, the configuration is the same. It is clear that this helmet was manufactured as a blue luftschutz gladiator, which are often seen with the plastic chinstrap. What is unusual is that the fact that the paint was added while the liner was inside and the stamps and decals are seen in different locations. These were reworked by hand.
