GERMAN WWII CAMOUFLAGE PARATROOPER HELMET.
A superb example of a large size shell stamped ‘ET71’ early pattern German paratrooper helmet. The exterior shell is in a classic Normandy two colour camouflage of tan and green, some losses of paint to the shell as can be seen from our web images and one loss just below the left hand retaining stud clearly shows evidence of a Luftwaffe eagle in place. The interior shell retains good apple green finish. To the interior the leather liner is complete, no tears between the holes of the leather, the inner rubber cushion all complete, chinstraps all complete with both slides with the male sections of the male/female connecting stud in place with the single female stud in place and wording correctly, the straps having some service wear conversant with the wear to the leather liner. Because of staining to the upper inner crown of the liner only very faint traces of any original manufacturers markings are visible. A superb example of a Normandy camouflage paratrooper helmet in a large size.
