WW2 German M42 Helmet-Replica

The German WWII M42 Paratrooper helmets were done for combat helmets that did not pass quality inspections. They were subsequently issued to civil departments like the fire, police and Luftschutz. The gauge of steel feels right for a combat helmet over a civilian helmet. In 1942, the Germans simplified their steel helmet by eliminating the rolled edge. This model was worn alongside the earlier M35 and M40’s until the end of WWII. They were worn by all services- Heer, Kriegsmarine, Luftwaffe, Polizei and Waffen SS. M42 will make a great addition to reenactors and collectors.

This Helmet  is High quality 18 Gauge Mild steel
