A fine WWII German SS Single Decal helmet.
The helmet has most of it’s dark green paint remaining, with scuffs and scratches from combat usage. The right hand side carries the SS decal, which has much intact. It is the Q pattern decal, which is correct for this helmet. All three liner rivets are in place and untouched. The leather liner is in good condition and has a slight shine from oiling. The helmet has a small part of the chinstrap remaining on one bale.
Manufactured by F.W. Quist, G.m.b.H. Esslingen and size 66 /59 with stamping Q66, and a batch number, which looks to be DN36* – mid 1943 production.
A great original combat used SS helmet, always hard to find.
