The exterior of this German helmet retains about 95% of the original dark blue paint. The helmet retains the original split pin rivets. The Luftschutz decal is clean and 95% complete.

The inner skirt is maker marked RL 2 38/25. In addition there is a paint stamp that reads:

This stamp appears to be a distribution stamp, which translates to: "Distribution approved according to Section 8 Air protection legislation. Head Width 57. Highest Price 8.50 Reichsmark."
