M42 ET66 SD HEER

DESCRIPTION 
Here is your ubiquitous mid-war M42 ET66 every fighting man's helmet. Single decal made in later 1942 when adler/eagles were still being applied. It does have some rust on the top dome as well as rust on the inside dome which will be hidden by the liner. I first got this piece as an untouched original shell and so a reproduction liner just needed to be added with the matching split pins all of which have already been done. Also using a special in house technique I went ahead and shaped the liner into a nice bowl shape and so now it will fit perfectly on a size 59 head as if worn by someone in the field for a year or so. I'll try to take some additional photos of the bowl shaped liner later on this afternoon. (Nov. 19th)

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.)
