M35 Waffen SS ET64 - book featured

Here is a very nice example of an M35 SS re-issue. The shell was apparently stripped and repainted in rough texture paint both inside and outside. The shell is an ET64 with batch number 2807. A wartime steel framed liner was added at the time of refurbishment (presumably 1940-41). The C.A. Pocher decal shows textbook details such as the thin borders within the black runes. The decal rates at 98% while the textured finish remains 94% intact. The chinstrap appears to be original to the helmet and is an unmarked aluminum mounted type. This helmet has been twice profiled in published books on German helmets. First it appeared in the 2004 “SS Steel” by Kelly Hicks; page 177. It has also appeared in “Germany’s Combat Helmets” by Ken Niewiarowicz on page 178-179. SS re-issues are quite rare and this is a fairly striking example.

US WWII M2 D-Bail Paratrooper

I am pleased to be able to offer the “holy grail” of US WWII helmets, formerly in the collection of Chris Arnold - author of “Steel Pots” and “Painted Steel”. This original M2 D-bail helmet retains 85% textured olive drab finish, has front weld seam and is complete with original D-bail chinstrap attachment loops. The original chinstraps are present also, but the small ends that snap into the helmet liner have been trimmed away. Looking closely at them, it is readily apparent that this was done long ago. Chris Arnold said that while doing research for his books, several veterans confessed to performing this operation as late in the war they were aware of the fact that there would be no more combat jumps - and the small straps were just one more thing to fool with. Here is a chance to buy an original D-bail that was previously in the collection of the well-know helmet author Chris Arnold.

US M1 Helmet “repair party 5”

An original late WWII or Korean Way US M1 Navy helmet painted red and stenciled REPAIR PARTY 5 AFT. It is a swivel bail rear seam model. I am told the helmet would likely be from either a cruiser which have 5 repair parties or a carrier have 6. The liner is a Westinghouse and the webbing is torn as you can see in the pictures. Not a helmet to wear but makes a great looking display.
