Original German WWII M42 Refurbished SS Chicken wire Helmet with Original Paint – Stamped hkp66

Regular price $495.00

Item Description

Original Item: One-of-a-kind. This is a fine example of totally original Model M42 M-1942 German WW2 large size 66 helmet shell. The shell is stamped hkp 66 indicating that Sächsische Emaillier und Stanzwerke A.G. of Germany manufactured it. Size 66 is a nice large size that can accommodate liners from 58cm to 60cm or US 7 1/4 to 7 1/2. Size 66 shells are much harder to find and are therefore more valuable to a collector.

It’s not often, but occasionally we get a helmet that still has its original WWII paint. Here we have an original shell with original paint. Rather than refurbish the original paint, we highlighted it by adding the reproduction liner and decals and made it special with the addition of reproduction aged chicken wire made to look just the original WWII original European Twist found in France in the 1940s. It looks just like it was picked up by a GI in 1944 France.

This helmet is one-of-a-kind there will never be one exactly like it making it a true collectors piece that will do nothing but appreciate in value in the coming years. This is a rare opportunity to own a genuine WWII German Helmet for a fraction of the cost of one with original camouflage paint and decals.
