Store: German Repro Items: Paratrooper Helmet M37 Model with M38 liner

M37 Model with M38 liner Fallschirmjägerhelm (Paratroopers Helmet Normandy): This is a first class reproduction of a Luftwaffe (Air Force), Fallschirmjager Helmet. It is based on a very rare M37 model shell, with late pattern helmet bolts. It has been modified using M38 liner which was common practice in mid-late war when earlier produced models were pressed into service. Notice the slots at the side of the helmet and the extra holes for retaining the original liner at the sides and rear.

This helmet is based on one used at Normandy in June 1944. It has its original luftwaffe apple green colour and then has been overpainted in white for the Russian campaign and finally has been repained dark green. The decals have been applied over the final coat of paint - very unusual, most probably because it was owned by an officer. The decals are 98% intact and 50% visible. The owner has has name painted inside the helmet rim - 'Major. Lau' . Notice the chicken wire basket, a very common addition during the Normandy campaign.

Check out the ageing to this helmet, it is superb, the liner has the look and feel of a 60+ year old field used helmet as has the shell!

This helmet would make a superb item in you paratrooper collection. It would also make a great filler till you get a genuine M37 Normandy helmet which is highly unlikely as very few M37's survived the war!

This item comes in a suitable aged box and a 'send home' label! A great present for the military collector!
