This is an original WWII German manufactured M42 helmet set. Its original factory textured feldgrau paint finish is in great condition. The top of the helmet exhbits some light surface rust. It's removal shouldn't be much of an issue, however that decision will be left to the new owner. The inside brim is size stamped EF66 along with the lot number 3344, denoting mid-1943 production by the Emaillierwerke A.G., Fulda factory. The interior retains its original leather liner and chinstrap. The size 59 liner is named to a Dr. Huffschmid. The leather has dried and deteriorated over time. The chinstrap is outfitted with a gray-painted steel buckle and a faint manufacturer's stamping near the liner's bail. The helmet's split pins and washers are all original and show no signs of tampering.
