Here is a fantastic example of an early pre-war Luftwaffe helmet in absolutely original and complete condition. The helmet was made at the Eisenwerkes factory in the city of Thale and a large size 66. The eagle is the first version much larger with a snake leg but equally as elegant as the second LW version. Both decals are about 85% in tact with normal battle wear and tear. The dark blue paint is smooth with a hardened enamel finish with it’s original square bale re-enforced liner system and original chinstrap. The chinstrap is full length and marker’s marked “A.Fischer, Berlin C.2, 1938”. All 3 split pins are made of solid brass and tight to the shell and there is an odd dome stamp on the inside from the Luftwaffe procurement office stamped something like 3W GBD requiring further research/translation. Even the original liner drawstring remains in place and so this is about as complete and original a Luftwaffe helmet as one can hope to encounter.
