Original German WWII M38 Luftschutz Air Defense Gladiator Helmet

Item Description

Original Items: Only one set available. This is an excellent original M1938 Beaded Luftschutz Gladiator German helmet. The exterior of this German helmet retains about 75% of the original dark blue paint. The helmet retains the original split pin rivets. The Luftschutz decal is clean and 98% complete but has some scuffs on the front side.

The inner skirt is maker marked RL2 40/14. In addition there is a paint stamp that reads:

Vertrieb genehmigt
gemäß § 8 Luftschutzgesetz
Kopfweite 56
Höchstpreis RM 8.--

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

Liner is complete and good condition, though somewhat fragile due to age. The liner top securing strap is not present. The chin strap is in excellent condition.

Overall a very nice complete German WWII M38 Luftschutz helmet.
