Beautiful EF! I have a similar helmet but not quite as nice as yours.

You must be very pleased - congrats.

A nice helmet for sure !

Welcome to GHV

thanks guys.

 

Yes a very nice SS M42 , thanks for sharing it.

I meant to post on this last night as I wanted to compare to my EF example for a particular reason that I needed to confirm......and then I forgot.

Anyway. Great example. Nice find! Congrats

Now.......my example has some red surface rust on the exterior and inside skirt from probably poor post war storage (and a liner band that was discussed at length many years ago.....). The rust is very bright in the photos given the snow and sun glare.

But...the kicker is.....I think could be the same lot number as yours or maybe just one or a few digits away. Mine is either 35892 or 35893 or 35898. The last number being misaligned and too lightly stamped.

What do people think? Same lot number? Brothers in arms? or just kissing cousins?

Frank also has one in his Lot # data base that reads 35898 and two that reads 35892

Well remembered Michael. And to add to the confusion - it could just be 3589.

Typical poorly stamped EF helmets.

 

or just kissing cousins?

 

In the SS ? Makes sense actually.

Very nice helmet Jean!
