Original German WWII M38 Luftschutz Gladiator Air Defense Helmet - Size 57

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is an excellent original M1938 Beaded Luftschutz Gladiator German helmet. The exterior of this German helmet retains about 90% of the original dark blue paint. The helmet retains the original split pin rivets, with the original paint present. The Luftschutz decal is clean and 95% complete with only a couple very minor scuffs. There is a sizable dent right above the decal on the top of the helmet.

The inner skirt is maker marked RL 2 - 39/11, most likely indicating manufacturer in the eleventh week of 1939. The leather liner is complete and in very good condition, with a size 57 marking ink stamped. The leather is very soft and supple, though the top securing strap is missing, and two of the fingers are torn through at the top. The chin strap is present, however one side is torn off right at the liner.

Overall a very nice German WWII M38 Luftschutz helmet, a great example of this model helmet from World War Two.
