Original German WWII M38 Luftschutz Gladiator Air Defense Helmet with Removed Decal

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice original M1938 Beaded Luftschutz Gladiator German helmet, which had the large decal on the front removed post-war. The exterior of this German helmet retains about 75% of the original dark blue paint. The helmet retains the original split pin rivets, with the original paint present. The Luftschutz decal, as stated previously, was removed post war, though some small silver flecks remain. There are some small dents and scrapes on the helmet, commensurate with long service

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 good condition, though there is definitely some level of deterioration and cracking, and the top tie is missing. Some attempts at repair were made in the past using glue. The original cork split pin spacers are present, and in good shape, as is the chin strap, which is complete with no splits.

Overall a very nice German WWII M38 Luftschutz helmet, used post war and offered at a very attractive price. Ready to display!
