Unique M42 ET62 Luftwaffe single decal splotch camouflage souvenir helmet


Unique and beautiful M42 Luftwaffe camouflage helmet which was a souvenir to the liberation. On top of the camouflage the helmet is period decorated with two sword wielding orange lions which is a symbol for the pre and post war Dutch army. In between these two lions there is a period orange painted text which reads Ter herinnering de dwingelandij der moffen 10 Mei 1940 which translates to Remembrance of the tyranny of the Germans, 10 may 1940. The helmet is a textbook Luftwaffe M42 helmet marked ET62 indicating production by Eisenhuttenwerke Thale. The helmet retains its original factory installed liner and chinstrap and has a single decal which can be seen peaking through the camouflage paint. The helmets exterior is nicely period camouflage with grey, green and brown. The helmet is a real stunner that would look nice in any helmet collection!
