Here is a rarely encountered early 1930's commercially produced
SS-Himmler style low duck bill helmet with satin black with original liner still in tact. Notice the protruding front bill and the overall low profile of the shell along with the odd position of the chinstrap rivet which is almost in line with the side vent hole. Many of these are marked with "drp ang"(Deutsch Reich Patent Pending) but like this particular example many are not marked whatsoever. There are a few dents on the top which is typical among all commercially produced SS helmets since the metal is quite thin and made primarily of aluminum meant for parades, ceremonies and guard duty and not really front line combat. Both decals are post war recreated in my opinion and so the helmet is being sold as such.

Please call, text or email me if interested in purchasing.

(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.)
