Fallschirmjäger Helmet

Fallschirmjäger Helmet in good condition came from inhabitant of small village in Northern Italy possibly Pergine in a valley along the way where the Germans retreated in 1945. The shell and liner were found separate and he put them together the liner had been preserved with grease to keep it soft. The Germans had left most of their equipment stacked in a soccer field in the village close to the actual Austrian border. Some of this was collected by the locals and in later years sold to collectors this was first sold to a collector in 1982 now I am fortunate enough to own it the first Fallschirmjäger Helmet I have ever owned.

Re: Fallschirmjäger Helmet

Very nice helmet Eddie.

Congrats for finding such a great piece of history.

The rivets look to have been replaced?

Hi there were 3 types of rivets or spanner bolts to hold the liner this is the last type slotted without the two little air vents which made the helmet very warm to wear over a long period !
