Item #: WR599
Click on an image to enlarge
This is a German Model 1942 helmet excavated from the site of the summer 1943 Kursk battlefield in Russia. The helmet is in relic condition, but is very stable. There is no liner, rivets or chinstrap. There are no visible decals or heat stamps, but this helmet would have been worn by a Wermacht or Panzer Grenadier soldier. There are traces of winter white camouflage paint scattered about on the helmet. There is one small hole in the top of the helmet, I don't believe it is from a projectile hitting it though. Instead of the usual wire used to help enhance camouflage effects, this helmet has barbed wire wrapped around it. The interior of the helmet matches the exterior in appearance. While it is in relic condition, this helmet has some great display power, and comes from the largest tank battle ever fought. It will make a great conversation piece among your WWII German collection.
