GERMAN WWII CAMOUFLAGE LUFTWAFFE PARATROOPER HELMET.
A rare Luftwaffe paratrooper helmet having very faint either batch or size markings to the inner rear skirt. On test the helmet liner appears to be size 55 or 56. The exterior shell with excellent camouflage finish of tan and green, possibly a pattern used in Sicily or Southern Italy. Some minor abrasions to the finish as can be seen to our web images. Standard spanner bolt fixing for the liner. The strapping system is in perfect condition with all male/female adjuster studs present and working correctly with its roller buckle. All of the stitches to the strapping system good and strong and workable. The inner liner has suffered from probably what is known as American red rot, photographs show clearly the rot that has occurred with evidence of an earlier collector repair to hold pieces together. In a modern environment within Europe this will not deteriorate.
