    Default Q66 or Q68

    My Luftwaffe helmet did not sell in the classifieds so I sent the helmet to Dave at ww2 german helmets. The helmet was post as a q66 I could have sworn it was a 68. I pull pictures from a old post I had showing the helmet. I you help me and my bad eyes. Is it a 66 or a 68.

    From that pic it looks like a 66 to me. Do you know the liner size? That would tell you too - if it is a 58 or 59 liner it is a 66 shell. A 68 shell would have a 60 or 61 liner. The shell size is also stamped into the metal liner band, if you can see that.

    Cheers,
    Terry

    Terry, unfortunately Dave has the helmet and I do not remember the liner or band size.

    Hey TD, I just looked it up on Dave's site and he says the liner is size 59. So that pretty much confirms it is a 66 shell unless the liner in it is the wrong size..... which does not look to be the case from the photos on Dave's site.

    Cheers,
    Terry

    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

    I have alway thought it to be a 68, unless my eyes are bad the 6 turns in on the left side middle and does not on the first 6.

    How did it fit on your head?

    I've put a 66 on my head before and the one in question to me was a bigger fit, that was another reason I was convinced it was a 68. I do bow down to Dave's expect opinion, he has seen and handled more helmet than I will ever touch, but I swear that 6 looks like a weak stamped 8.
