Here is an all original untouched later war M42 CKL66 helmet with all original paint and liner system. Since the rear lot number 3222 matches up to other known SS factory issued helmets, the buyer requested that I professionally add a high end reproduction SS decal to it so that he could display it on one of his SS mannequins. I did so in a non-destructive process using a water based glue that I have developed in house. To remove the decal the owner need only soak a wet cloth over the decal and in about 20 minutes it will neatly slide right off with no traces left behind.

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.)
