Original World War Ii German Paratrooper Helmet:
Up for sale, an original World War II M38 German Paratrooper helmet. This helmet has the tropical tan camouFlage paint over the original apple green paint (it looks like the camo paint was brushed on the helmet). On the top of the helmet both the brown camouFlage paint and the apple green paint has been worn off and there is some surface rust. The Luftwaffe eagle on the left side of the helmet has been partially covered by the camo paint and there are no offensive marking on the helmet. The helmet has the early type spanner bolts and the number 461 is stamped on the back skirt of the helmet. The chicken wire has come apart on one part of the helmet (can be easily fixed). The interior of the helmet is intact but the leather is dark and very dry. There is some writing on the liner, hard to read, and I think it says Kopfweite Gr. 59. The rubber pads are dry and have pulled away from the liner. Overall, this is a nice, rare "salty" tropical Fallschirmjager helmet that has been there, maybe Tunisia. Please ask all questions before offerding as there will be no refunds. I only will ship to an address in the United States. No international shipping. Mannequin head not for sale. The helmet has been in my collection for many years. I am in the process of moving and have decided to start selling some of the items in my collecton.
