Luftwaffe M38 Fallschirmjäger "wire" helmet - ET68

Description

This helmet was published as a rare outstanding original example in Roly Pickering's book "Fallschirmjäger (Volume 1)".

Fantastic M38 German paratrooper helmet with a period time applied wire. The wire helmet to attach camo material to the helmet. Many period time photos proof helmets were worn like this.

A nicely worn helmet with well over 90% of the original fieldgrey factory paint. A few scratches and light rust. The 3mm thick wire left some scratches as well.

The Luftwaffe eagle decal is about 85%. 

All rivets are originally applied and were never opened. The chin straps are period time applied. A nicely worn 1st pattern pair with PRYM 6 marked button. Signs of wear. Still flexible.

Soft leather liner in absolutely matching condition. "Kopfweite: Gr.58" stamped as well as "Baumuster: Heisler, Berlin C2" stamped. "Hersteller: F.W. Müller jr." maker marked. 

An untouched helmet!
