M42 ET66 SD HEER (Restored to Factory Specs)

Gem mint ORIGINAL M42 ET66 shell with a rear lot number corresponding to Heer single decal. The shell was completely stripped down to bare metal and then repainted in an exterior feld grau textured finish and a smooth enamel paint on the inside. Decal is white metallic just like an original textbook ET would appear. Size 66 helmets are getting harder and harder to find as most have been locked up in personal collections or restored into
re-enactors helmets.

$450 SOLD - S. Beaule

(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.)
