M42 ET64 SD HEER LOT 2232

Here is a helmet fresh out of New York City of all places! Here is your mid-war ubiquitous raw edge helmet with a single Heer decal about a year before the eagle was deleted from factory production. The eagle is your textbook ET version and has developed a beautiful honey tone color to it caused by the oxidation of the protective lacquer coating. The inside liner is also 100% original and all 3 split pins are original and never messed with. Unfortunately the chinstrap has been cut most likely by knife or bayonet in the field as a GI trophy find. Rear lot number of 2232 suggests a mid 1942 year of factory production according to Brian Ice's lot data book.

A great first helmet to any new collector and has lots of investment value given that most people seek out German helmets with un-messed with decals.

(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.)
