L056. WWII GERMAN TRANSITIONAL ARMY M18 HELMET WITH STACKED DECALS. FORMER DOUBLE DECAL, PARTS OF THE NATIONAL SHIELD ARE VISIBLE THROUGH CHIPS IN THE PAINT. THER ARE AT LEAST TWO COATS OF PAINT TO THE HELMET. THERE ARE FLAKING REMANTS OF A SILVER TONED ARMY DECAL ON TOP OF EITHER ANOTHER WELL TONED ARMY DECAL OR IT MAY BE KRIEGSMARINE. IT APPEARS TO ME THAT THE SILVER DECAL WAS CHIPPED AWAY TO REVEAL THE GOLD DECAL UNDERNEATH. THE SHELL MAKER MARKS ARE HIDDEN UNDER THE THICK, TEXTURED REPAINT. 1931 DATED LINER BAND IS SIZE 66. THERE IS A STAINED, DRY SECTION ON THE BACK OF THE LINER WITH A CRACK ALONG THE EDGE. THE REST OF THE LEATHER IS FINE. RETIANS ALL THREE RIVETS AND WASHERS. SALTY HELMET THAT HAD A LONG CAREER. GUARANTEED ORIGINAL. FREE SHIPPING IN THE U.S.A. CLICK ON PHOTOS TO ENLARGE. ***SOLD***
