    An original M42 Shell, original liner, paint looks okay, chinstrap appears repaired with rivets, I cannot comment on the decal...
    Overall a nice helmet, from what I can see in the photos...Others may be able to help you with Manufacturer Code and #...
    cheers, Glenn

    It's a "hkp" maker size 64 and as glenn said the chinstrap has been repaired and liner looks good and the decal I can't really tell if it's good or bad because it's all faded or rubbed off.

    I put gunny by mistake sorry Glenn!

    Hi, no problems with this M42 HEER from here, a shame the decal has been "scrubbed" away but if the price is right that's no problem. Leon.

    Dear all,

    Maybe of interest. I got some infomation (I hope they are real) from the former owner about the vet who had owned the helmet: Proabably it had belonged to a "Maschinenmaat" (petty officer second class and mechanician) of the navy. For his commitment he had got the EK, he had been at Narvik and he had received the "Kampfabzeichen der Kleinkampfmittel, 1. Stufe" (as an award for undersea divers, crews of very small submarines etc). However, at the end of the war he had been fighting as an infantryman.

    That's great if it's true but you know the score, buy the item and not the story!...

    That's right!

    P.S.: I got the story after I bought the helmet
