The German M-35 steel helmet was modified in 1942 to increase production. The turned out, unrolled edge became the defining feature of the classic M-42 German stahlhelm. The original finish of the M-42 was a rough field gray (also known as "feldgrau"), the high polish and decals of earlier German helmets having been dropped after hard experience in the harsh crucible of war. This German Army WW2 M-42 STAHLHELM Steel COMBAT HELMET is in excellent condition, with only some slight, hardly noticeable spot denting at the top of the crown, and some slight spot age wear to the exterior (ALL pictured). Otherwise, the helmet is in excellent shape, with absolutely no cracking or other damage to the tough steel construction, which retains approximately 95% of its original "feldgrau" finish. It's complete with the original, fully intact brown leather interior liner, and even boasts the original buckled brown leather chinstrap still fully intact. It features the distinctive M-42 unrolled edge, carries the familiar German manufacturer numerical markings at the interior back rim, and is a beautiful example of a rare, original, and complete German Army WW2 M-42 STAHLHELM Steel COMBAT HELMET. We guarantee this helmet to be 100% original from WW2. Now celebrating over 10 years on eBay. and please view our other great military and aviation classics,
