M42 Wehrmacht Helmet

An M42 " Raw rim " Wehrmacht Helmet made by Sachsische Emillier u. Stanwerke, Lauter and has the later stamp hkp instead of SE. This helmet was uncleaned when I bought it and the decal was hardly visible through the dirt I decided to clean it gently with just soapy water and the decal was preserved better than I ever expected.

Decal close up, the decals on the M42's were never as well fixed to the helmets as the earlier M35 & M40 and are more prone to flaking.
