Black bikerized shells or black post war Czech painted shells are always bought at buyer's own risk as I can never be certain what is below the black paint however 99% of time the black paint actually serves to protect the shell and so is actually a blessing in disguise. I can guarantee however no dents, rust pitting or cracks of any kind, these are really clean and rock solid original shells.
GERMAN HELMET FACTORY PRODUCTION CODES
(Every original German helmet produced from 1935 to 45 had two factory stampings punched into the side and rear or both in the rear. The alpha numeric number refers to the factory location and the inside metric circumference in centimeters. The rear lot number refers to the production run and was used as a quality control measure. The font styles used at each factory were slightly different but highly consistent throughout the war and so fakes or reproductions will either not have these numbers at all or they will use the wrong font style or letter spacing and so are easily identified as post war made.)
