NEW UPDATE! NOVEMBER 28TH, 2023
While all split pins are present, they exhibit a slight looseness attributed to the helmet's wartime service. The rim bears clear markings, indicating its origin as a "CKL62" helmet, and includes the lot number. The helmet is accompanied by the short section of the original chinstrap, but is missing the long part.
In very good to excellent condition, this Heer/Waffen SS M42 helmet encapsulates the wear and history associated with its service during the tumultuous times of World War II. Collectors and enthusiasts alike will find in this artifact a tangible link to the bygone era it represents.
