Beautiful and worn M38 pattern paratrooper steel helmet, in ‘as-found’ condition, most likely from an attic or barn. Original green coating is present, shows normal wear. The decal is still firmly present and shows similar ageing with the rest of the helmet. The liner is soft in some spots and hardened where the blood stain is. This helmet was most likely taken from the battlefield from a killed paratrooper and went back to The States as a souvenir where it surfaced some time ago. The rubber paddings are partially present, they show little damages and a few small parts are gone missing due wear. The liner is maker and size marked but both stamps are very hard to read because of the wear. The helmet remains complete with its original full-length straps, complete with buckle and PRYM marked snap buttons. The shell is marked on the side by ET, (big!) size 71 and has the lot number 697. Stunning and hard to find helmet.
