117) An interesting 100% original wartime German M42 steel helmet. The helmet has all original wartime factory applied green paintwork inside and out with some minor surface rust in places but all will clean up with an oily rag. The shell has had an extremely hard knock to the front right hand brim which has distorted the it massively. We are not sure if this was battle damage or just hit with something but whatever it was knocked the whole thing out of shape (see photos) the inside again shows surface rust to the dome. The rear brim is marked hkp64 with a low production number of 390. An interesting original item.
