M42 EF66 CAMO
This Heer M42 retains about 75% of a sand camo paint over the factory applied feldgrau. This camo color was used mostly in the Mediterranen theatre and northern Africa. A lot of scratches and scuffs together with the typical loss of paint outside the upper dome show the helmet had heavy usage on the field. A nice patina is overall present inside and outside the shell. The split pins are complete of the washers and tight in the shell, the prongs are not rebent and the liner doesn't show signs of ever been dismounted. The rim inside back is stamped EF 66, lot number 1476. The steel liner band is dated 1943, manufactured by D.R.P. The leather liner is still pliable, it has all the tongues intact and the original drawstring. Big size 59. The leather chin strap is complete and in good condition, no markings are legible.
