    The second helmet from our latest consignor is another fabulous camouflage helmet.  This time is a 2-tone pattern in a light green and brown, over the factory gray.  This helmet is a Q64 shell, complete with a full liner and chinstrap. The liner is in excellent condition.  The chinstrap is all there, but has a tear through at one of the stud locations and is quite worn overall.  However, this remains a sharp looking camouflage helmet.  Excellent!

    We're not sure of the purpose of this particular party banner.  It is single sided with a separately applied center disk, which is set with the swastika square and not at the mobile or 45 degree rotaion.  The corners are reinforced, but no strings or grommets. Approximately 2.5 x 3 ft, so not that large.  It is certainly salty, with fading and some damage to the red field.

    This helmet has proven to be a fraud.    I am working on a complete write up to out line the method in which the fake stamp was added to this early postwar LMZ helmet.  When I have completed the write up, it will be posted in the Blog section of the website.   News of it's posting will be communicated though our usual channels.

    Frontovik Militaria repaired this helmet...   Miss that?  Again, we repaired this helmet When this Heer M35 reissue was acquired, it had but one damaged split pin holding the liner in... barely, and that pin didn't survive the journey to us.  Too interesting to leave as a pile of parts, the liner has been refitted with a trio of extremely well matching split pins and washers.  Also added, was the buckle side of the chinstrap of the appropriate type for this helmet. The helmet was a single decal M35 reissue that was later given an over paint in a lumpy, textured camouflage layer.  At that point, the Heer decal was painted around.  Later still, the Heer decal was removed and based on the patina of the steel in the removal area, it looks period done to further subdue the helmet.  The liner is complete, named, and a size 64.   Long side of the chin strap is original to the helmet and is slightly shortened.

    We picked this German helmet liner up in a recent lot, and it might prove useful to someone's restoration project.  This is an original wartime liner that was reconditioned and reissued by the Norwegian military.  The chinstrap and draw string are not original, but everything else is.  In typical fashion for these Norwegian liners, it has been sprayed with the dreaded, red-brown dye or preservative.  It is a useful size however, made for a size 66 shell.  The leather is in good condition, albeit coated in postwar finish. The liner band is fine and should clean up.

    Offered is this interesting M42 combat helmet for the Luftwaffe.  This single decal helmet is maker and sized ET64.  It has been given a brush on, subdued paint finish over the original factory paint.  The decal, which is mostly present, was painted around in the process.  The liner band and split pins are intact, but the liner leather is very deteriorated.  The number 123 has been hand painted on the rear skirt

    This Imperial German M18 helmet shell is an ideal restoration candidate.  Shell only, no liner components or split pins.  The shell is currently preserved under a fairly modern looking layer of gray paint.  The shell markings are obscured by paint, but it appears to be a size 64 shell.  A minor crack in one of the vent lugs is the only real damage.

    Offered is this later war, unmarked, steel buckle for the Waffen SS EM or NCO.  This buckle is representative of the common late war construction.  Again, it is unmarked,and was painted silver.  The obverse has lost most of the paint, but it is still evident on the back side.  It remains a solid specimen of a desirable buckle.

    Offered is this Deutsche Jungvolk (DJ) belt and buckle set with a rare buckle variation.  This unmarked brass buckle, finished in black is quite difficult to find.  The buckle is unmarked (pre-RZM?) and retains a high percentage of the original black paint.  There is some flaking evident in what appears to be a factory clear lacquer coating, but the obverse of the buckle is still quite nice.  The rig is completed with a high quality leather belt. The belt is in black patent leather and is maker marked boldly for the firm Richard Grohmann, Plauen.  The belt has some crazing to the patent leather side. There is a gray felt pad layer between the belt and adjustment strap.  A rare belt rig indeed.

    This late war SS visor cap skull is an late war specimen, and has been attributed to the Assmann firm.  This style is without separately applied prongs. Instead, they are integral to the forming of the skull.  Produced in zinc with a silver wash or paint, this example has nice amount of this silver finish remaining.  Also present are the horizontal striations in the base metal that is common to most all of these skulls.  Unmarked, all three prongs remain.

    Offered is a rare piece of early postwar unit history of one of America's fabled combat units.  This is the "Epic of the 101st Airborne".    This unit history was published in 1945, shortly after the end of action for the unit.  The book chronicles the path of the 101st airborne from activation until the end of the war in Europe.  This specimen is well aged, with staining and wear throughout, and the rear cover has separated off the spiral bind. It looks repairable.

    This War Service Cross, 1st Class was picked up at an estate sale in the Bell Court area of our hometown here in Kentucky.   As such it has never been in a collection.  This piece is in nice condition, but appears to have been tunic worn during its service life and has some evidence of that.  There is still frosting to be found on the sword blades and in the low areas, but there is some wear to the outer finish to the high points, and on the swastika in particular.  This area appears to have possibly been period polished.  Sean has done a good job capturing this in the photos.  The pin and catch are intact and functional.  This cross comes with the original issue case.  The case has corner wear and scuffing to the finish and to the embossed representation of the award on the lid.  The hinge and catch are functional.  The interior of the case is marked for the Kerbach & and Oestholt firm of Dresden.  The Cross is marked on the reverse side of the pin "62", also the mark of Kerbach & Oesterhelt, so a matched pair.   A nice, locally sourced piece, right out of the woodwork.

    While not it the finest condition, these early Luftwaffe helmets are not common helmets.  This specimen is an ET64 with most of the eagle intact, but the tri-color shield has been removed, and at some point the shell has received a second, blue over paint.  The liner is missing most of the tongues, no drawstring or chinstrap.  The shell interior retains the typical ink stamps to the interior as often seen in these early Luft M35s.   Marked "Staffel 7" with one stamp, the other is not legible. Perhaps someone familiar with these marking can make it out.

    Urban Police Shako

    $700.00
    We just picked up this piece at a regional gun show recently.  It is a nice Polizei Shako, trimmed in black leather for urban police forces.  This hat is made by the H.Becker Company of Berlin.  It is a size 56 and is dated 1942.  Interesting is that the liner was mis-marked size 57 on the reverse and there is a hand annotated correction.  The exterior is in super condition, with just some surface cracks to the EM leather chinstrap.  The liner is missing the drawstring, and has one damaged tongue and damaged stitching at the seam.  The liner is very clean otherwise.  The hat remains a nice presentation.
