    I think the liner at least is Danish from the CF with crown marking in it, probably civil defence use. Whether the shell is wartime German is hard to say from these pics, it might be post war BGS. I'm pretty sure the paint is not wartime at least. Any markings on the shell?

    Nothing to suggest use by Norway anyway.

    Not Norwegian. If I am not mistaken: CF= Civil Forsvaret(Civil Defence). I am quite sure it is Danish.

    Hi Paul,

    It depends what you are looking for, it's not a shocking price but you could probably find a nicer one for similar money. Do you just want a representative 'German helmet'?

    The CF marked stuff was, as far as I know, never used. They had masses of donated or bought foreign kit in storage in case Ivan decided the rest of Europe would look better in red. You can find lots of items marked CF from US M1 helmets to British gasmasks to apparently German reissued helmet shells. It could have been used by the fire service also.

    From the pics available, there seems to be a makers mark by the left ear which is a good sign for it being German. By the shape of those stamped vents and the angle of the skirt dip I'd be inclined to say it was made by the firm Quist, or maybe NS.
