Original German WWII Refurbished M40 2nd SS Das Reich Battle of Moscow Medic Helmet - Stamped EF64
Original Item: One-of-a-kind. This is a fine example of totally original Model M40 M-1940 German WW2 large size 64 helmet shell. The shell is stamped EF 64 indicating that Emaillierwerke AG, of Fulda, Germany manufactured it. Size 64 is a nice large size that can accommodate liners from 56cm to 59cm or US 7 to 7 1/4. Size 64 shells are harder to find and are therefore more valuable to a collector.
2nd SS Das Reich Battle of Moscow
- In November of 1941 the advance to Moscow had ended.
- The 2nd SS Das Reich held the ground 49KM west of the city when the Soviet offensive struck on Dec 5th.
- The 8000 remaining Soldaten fought fiercely to hold the line in the face of overwhelming odds.
- This helmet represents one worn by a Sanitat (Medic) veteran.
- The Green camo has been over painted with white and there is one large Red Cross covering the entire helmet.
- The order to obscure decals had not yet come out, so this soldaten carefully painted his white covering and red cross around the decals on each side of the helmet
What does refurbished mean? While the shell is 100% genuine WWII manufacture, we have tasked, perhaps the very best German Helmet restorer in the USA, to customize this helmet. Every detail is hand done, with the finest materials including a hand painted shell with high quality authentic decal. Please know that the paint, decal, liner and chinstrap, while they look totally original are all new and the helmet has been refurbished to look as if it was picked up off the battle field by a USGI and brought home as a war trophy.
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.
