M1918 Heer Single Decal German Helmet - Veteran Bringback

This is an original M1918 WWI German helmet that was reissued during WWII.  The exterior exhibits surface rust and paint loss, especially in the dome area.  The paint is the mid war field gray typically found on mid war pieces.  There are areas of early Third Reich era "Apple Green" peaking through.  Two of the three split pins are fully intact and are present.   The helmet has the original steel banded M1931 liner.  The liner band is the earlier single aluminum type and it does have a break just forward of the left chinstrap bale.   The earlier liners were prone to breakage in that area.   The liner band is dated 1937 and is size 56.  The leather is is good overall condition with some typical staining and one small area of mouse damage.  The drawstring is present and in good condition.  The helmet has an Italian WWII chinstrap on it.   I have seen a number of WWII German helmets with Italian straps retrofitted on them.   The strap is in good condition but the leather is somewhat dry.  The Heer decal is present but is mostly gone at this point.  The helmet is maker marked TJ66 indicating manufacture by C. Thiel & Söhne in Lübeck, Germany.  This WWII M1918 German helmet was brought back from the war by a US Army Veteran and comes direct from his family.  As with all our helmets, this M1918 German Heer helmet comes with our Lifetime Guarantee and Certificate of Authenticity.

Tropical Kriegsmarine Pith German Helmet - First Pattern

This is an extremely scarce 1940 (First) Pattern Tropical Pith German helmet by the Carl Halfar firm of Berlin.   This appears to be one of the only examples of the Tropical KM Pith from the Carl Halfar firm.   Generally the Halfar firm manufactured for the Heer.   This one likely was part of a special requisition.   The helmet came out of a Veteran estate in Iowa and has never been in a collection, and is untouched in all regards.   The 1940 pattern piths are characterized by the use of the canvas material.   This Tropical KM Pith German helmet is in nice solid condition.  The shell is in great shape with only a slight indentation at the top.   The chinstrap is present and is in good overall condition with some typical dryness.  The Kriegsmarine shield looks great and retains virtually all of the original gilt finish.  The Tricolor shield also looks great and retains most of the original finish as well.   The interior is in nice overall condition.   The inner sweatband is size stamped 57 and is Carl Halfar marked.   The synthetic trim band around the circumference is in good condition with typical age cracking.  Overall, a nice clean example of a very rare Kriegsmarine Tropical Pith helmet.  As with all of our items, this KM Tropical Pith German helmet comes with our Written Lifetime Guarantee and Certificate of Authenticity.
