NSKK M42 NS68 Lot # 2772
This one arrived this week, from Ken N. It is a neck stamped NS68 bathtub, lot number 2772, formerly a SD Luft, with a nice and relatively intact NSKK decal, complete with a shortened chinstrap and really nice size 60 liner. I traded away an M42 NSKK earlier this year (the one in the Baer book with the hand painted shield on the right side of the shell) and have been missing that one ever since. This one is sans shield, but fills the vacancy on the shelf nicely, and is in a bit better shape than its older brother, shown in the last photo. That one is an EF62, lot number 4151. Hope you like it, Jim G

That's a nice (a very nice) one. Thanks for showing. Something I never get to see!
It's huge too. Love the size difference between the two!
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

Whooo Jim, that is a great helmet. That's got to be as rare as hens teeth! A great addition( upgrade) to your collection. Leon.

Very nice helmet Jim.
That is on my list.
