An extremely rare, WWII German Kriegsmarine helmet, in a huge size 70 shell.
The helmet was originally issued as a double decal with the National colours shield, which has been removed by scraping off as per the 1940 regulations. The gold Kreigmarine decal is still intact at around 60%.
The exterior of helmet is fair condition complete in it’s factory issue early original apple green paint. There is some period tarnishing and scuffing to the paint from period usage. The early re-enforced aluminium liner is slightly dry but solid and in good overall condition.
The helmet was manufactured in early 1940 by Eisenhüttenwerk Thale. The inner skirt carries the maker code ET70 with batch number 4613.
A very rare huge Kriegsmarine combat helmet.
