    Hi , that's a very nice re-issue HEER helmet , it could be a KM decal(can you see a black border to the edge of the adlers wing)? I personally think it is more likely a toned HEER. I have a toned HEER that is a very deep gold(pictured) which looks very similar(the decal that is,not the paintwork)! Leon.Click image for larger version.

    Hi Leon. Maybe your right. I can`t tell if there is a black border on the eagle. As you can see there is not that much showing to tell. But why put a heer decal on top of a existing heer decal ? But I don`t know. I must say I have seen a lot of toned heer decals. But never one looking that gold as yours ! Are you sure that is not a KM decal ? Looks like there is a border on that eagle ! But sure you know what you got there !! Nice helmet ! Who`s the maker ? and lot number ? SF

    Hi , my one is an ET 62 , 3969 which is a double decal HEER in the lot numbers book , in hand you cannot see a black border at all on this one , but I used to own another single decal HEER(PICTURED) that I think was an ET also(certainly the decal was)Click image for larger version.

ID:	594909 , that had a slight black border but no 3d effect at all on the swastika,under close examination this too proved to be a re-issue HEER helmet and it's lot number also matched known HEER helmets(although I cannot remember what it was now! The lacquer really can turn a deep gold on occasions. I hope that helps you, Leon.

    Hi Leon. That is also a nice helmet ! Did you sell that one ? I wouldn`t have sold it if it was mine ! Very nice ! Did ET made KM helmets ? Who else ? I think to remember I have read somewhere , not all helmet makers got a contract to make KM helmets !? Sure you know !.. And about the Lot numbers ! Some say we can not use the Lot numbers to tell what a helmet is/was ! If you don`t see it , as kradspam says earlier in this post ! Is not all Lot numbers known and registred ? Is my helmet Lot number in any database ? Do you got a database with known Lot numbers,and can you tell ? I know it is a lot of questions , but got interrested to find out what my helmet was born as ! If you can help, I would be happy ! Thanks !!!! SF

    Hi SF , the lot numbers are only a guide to what a helmet is or could have been. They are compiled by listing helmets that are already known by their branch of service. That said if a lot number falls in the middle of a batch of numbers that are all HEER helmets it is unlikely that if it had an SS decal on, it would be correct unless it is a field applied example if you see what I mean. As for your helmet ET64 3670 , it is listed as either a double decal HEER or double decal LUFTWAFFE. To be fair though , that area of lot numbers is pretty mixed all around yours so it could possibly be a KM but I would still edge to the side of a HEER helmet as others definitely exist with that number and there are no known KM with that number(as of yet)!! Leon.

    Hi Leon. Thanks a lot !! That was exactly that answer I was looking for ! You Hit it spot on !! I see what you meen ! Then I also would say it must has been born as a
    DD Heer helmet ! Maybe I hope`d a little it was a KM ! And that It was in a database as such ! Maybe one day another will come to light ! But till then It is a DD Heer.
    But still happy about the helmet ! Just made it complete by adding a nice 1938 marked chinstrap with alu. buckle I had extra ! So now it`s hanging on the wall !! :-)
    Have just ordered that lot number book from Brian. So I don`t have to ask here all the time ! ;-)
    Once again thanks Leon, for helping here !! Have a nice day. SF

    Hi , that's no problem at all , Brians book is a top read(if you like lists)and well worth having as a reference. I hope your not hanging your helmet by the newly added chinstrap! LOL, have a good one, Leon.
