Feldherrnhalle Helmets

Vereinigte Deutsche Nickelwerke (NS) size 62 – M35

  • Lot number D29
  • Typical configuration for these helmets , overpaint and re-decalled. You see the Original Luftwaffe helm under the leather.
  • Overpaint remnants can be seen on the leather
  • Traces of a Luftwaffe decal can be seen under the swastika decal , there maybe even one hidden under the pain on the other side as you can see a wing tip on the left side.

Eisenhüttenwerke Thale (ckl) size 66 – M42

  • A rare example of a Feldherrnhalle division helmet with its unique decals , in its own right a fascinating example as most surviving examples are M35 helmets that have the decals switched (swastika on the wearers right side).
  • Like with NSKK helmets these FHH helmets always seem to have been painted over the original factory paint before receiving their decals.
  • Liner band dated 1943
