MODEL 1940 SINGLE DECAL GERMAN ARMY HELMET

$525.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1061-42

The M1940 helmet was produced out of improved manganese-silicon steel through a process of hot stamping the metal.  The edges of the helmet were rolled under creating a smooth edge around the circumference of the helmet. The air vents on the M1940 were stamped directly into the steel as opposed to being separate rivet type vents attached to the helmet as on the earlier Model 1935.

This helmet retains approx. 98% of its original very dark, almost black green paint. There are a few spots of white paint on the left side but these are very small. The Army eagle decal is 98% intact with some light scratches and discoloration.

The interior of the helmet has its original brown leather liner which is complete but shows light to moderate wear and is missing the draw string in the crown. Chinstrap is gone but keepers are present.

This helmet is marked on the inside left skirt with “EF64” while the back inside skirt is marked with a “9810.” There is no visible dome stamp. Helmet was produced the Emaillerwerke A.G. in Fulda, Germany

Nice example of a World War Two German army helmet.  [ad]
