An M42 Kreigsmarine Helmet Consignment 4

An M42 Kreigsmarine Helmet - Steel helmet with a raw edge, magnetic, original field gray painted exterior, the gold-coloured Navy (Kreigsmarine) insignia on the left side exhibiting a pair of scuff marks. The inside comes complete with its original eight-panel leather liner, stitched together at the rear, each panel with five ventilation holes, a reinforced hole on the end of each panel with leather reinforcing rings on the undersides, for the feeding of the drawstring. The tip of one of the panels has broken off from the main body, but remains looped around the original drawstring via the reinforced hole. The leather chinstrap is affixed to the liner's steel frame, but the middle part of the chinstrap has been severed, with only the riveted loop ends intact, the left side portion tied to the frame via a brownish-red cord. The underside of the skirt is stamped "EF66" on the left side and "857" at the rear. Measures 248 mm x 296 mm x 155 mm in height. The exterior exhibits various contact marks, with semblances of white paint, the bolt cap on the left side is slightly loose, the majority of the leather liner has hardened and has turned a blackish-brown colour, with wear along the entire outer edge and fragmentation on the left side, in near very fine condition.
