    ~ WW2 German Original M45 Paratrooper Helmet with Luftwaffe Decal ~


    A Second World War German Paratroopers (Fallschirmjager) helmet with the Luftwaffe decal to one side.

    The M45 steel helmet has a painted finish in camoflagued two tone browns. The helmet is complete with all parts of its leather liner including chin strap and protective foam rubber block structure. The inner rim has the correct crease line.

    The decal on the left side has the Swastika insignia below the eagle.

    The inside of the helmet is marked "Welte Stahlhelm 71", there are no other numbers as is usual for these late war M45's.

    The chin strap on this helmet was introduced in 1936 and designed to cross behind the back of the neck and down around the chin while crossing on either side of the ears. It is unique to the paratrooper corps.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The helmet is marked 71 referring to its size 71cm.
    The helmet measures 10.75 inches (27.5cm)long brim to brim and 8.5 inches (21.5cm) wide brim to brim.
    The helmet weighs 1.648kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The painted surface has some surface wear revealing areas of the steel underneath. There are a few small dents. The decal has minor wear but is intact. The helmet is complete with its liner and chin strap. The liner has only light wear but the strap has signs of from the buckle. The padding blocks are good and stiff as they should be (with non-uniform bubble sizes) and the shell shows the correct level of rigidity. One screw has been replaced.

    ~ Postage ~

    Postage costs £18 or the helmet can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard....Read full description
