This is an original WWII German manufactured M34 double decal Feuerschutzpolizei helmet. The black painted helmet exhibits early characteristics, such as the square brim variation, dual salt and pepper shaker style vent holes, and the ability to install a center spine atop the helmet for additional protection. The sides of the helmet are adorned with original Polizei decals, with evidence of an earlier set of decals applied underneath. The interior brim is stamped D.R.P. Thale, along with the resting lion logo, denoting production by the Eisenhüttenwerke, Thale factory. It comes with its original size 56 leather liner still intact, albeit damaged. The cork spacers are square, signifying war-time installation.
