    Hi Chris, My only fibre helmet is a prototype style, a double decal Heer with the slots on the apron. Baer has a short section about this shell type, which was field tested and rejected. There is a lengthy discussion about fibre helmets on GHW. Jim G.

    Jim being this is a DD is it safe to assume it was constructed and tested pre 1940 .

    Pre 1935. I will pull out the Baer book tomorrow and make sure that I post correct information about the testing of this style fibre helmet. Jim G.

    Thanks Jim it is a very intresting helmet I was not expecting the early pre 1935 date . I must admit it is the first fiber helmet I have seen and it caught my attention right away .
