Spanish Civil War helmet reissued during the forties. As such it received the following modifications:
- Painted green--> The original issue was painted steel grey. Not to be mistaken with navy and airforce grey on post war reissued ones to those services.
- Re-lined--> Original linings were black (though I'll not be all too strict on that, probably this was not too much followed during wartime production).
- Addition of a metallic device at the front to hold the pattern 1943 eagle.
Helmets in untouched original condition and well preserved are becoming scarce nowadays, as the main source was does stranded in cellars, barns and the like and not military depots. Those with original wartime mottos or unit crests painted are now expensive.
