The Luftschutz decal is clean and 95% complete but has some scuffs on the front side.

The inner skirt is maker marked RL2 39/10. In addition there is a paint stamp that reads:

This stamp appears to be a distribution stamp, which translates to: "Highest Price 8 Reichsmark. Distribution approved according to Section 8 Air protection legislation. Head Width 56. ."

Liner is complete and very good condition. The liner top securing strap is not present. The chin strap is in good condition.

Overall a very nice complete German WWII M38 Luftschutz helmet.
