My newest acquisition
The M56 (Zweiteilige) Bundeswehr stalhelm
shell is made by "Quist" dated 56' batch 60, it has stitched chinstraps and type one brass hardwear... it's a shame but at some time in its life someone has taken 2 pot shots at it with an airgun/bb gun/airsoft??? and then attempted to hammer out the dent..... ineptly missed and caused another dent outwards!!(see photos) I fitted an American WW II type net as this is as close to the original as I could find ...for now!!!.
The liner is stamped P. S. P. a maker I haven't come across before!!!....and it's also dated 56' it has a stiched nape strap
your comments please gents!!
