Polizei M42 DD Combat Helmet


Polizei Double Decal M42 Combat Helmet (Stahlhelm M42). The stamped sheet steel construction M42 helmet retains almost all of its slightly textured field-grey paint, the paint is showing scratches and normal traces of usage. Both decals are in very good condition with some minor damage and scratches caused by usage, the Police decal is present for about 90%, the party shield decal is present for about 95%. All three liner retaining rivets are intact. The interior of the helmet is a M31 leather liner, the liner is approximately a size 57. The liner is regrettably in heavily used condition, it looks like there is some blood-staining in front of the liner. The shell is marked with maker and size 'EF66' which indicates production by the 'Emaillierwerke A.G.' in Fulda. The reverse interior neck guard apron has a stamped serial number '1280'. The helmet is complete with its original damaged/broken 1943 dated chinstrap. This helmet has recently been found in a private household in Winterswijk in the Netherlands. The helmet was taken as a souvernir from the war by a Dutch boy in Woerden near Utrecht in 1945, the helmet belonged to a German Police Member who was executed for desertion in the last days of the war, 4 police members were executed. Hard to find original Polizei helmet in good untouched original condition!
