M38 ET68 German Paratrooper/Fallschirmjäger Double Decal Helmet
This was found in June 2016 by a picker of mine at a yard sale in Long Island, New York. He paid $5 for the helmet but I had to pony up much more. The helmet is is excellent condition with both decals nearly 100%. The concussion pads are the early white rubber version. The chinstrap buckle is even the early anodized tension clasp. Another neat feature is the ID tag fixed to one of the liner air holes. The same initials and ID numbers are written in fountain pen on the leather liner. This helmet also won the 2016 Helmet Of The Year on German Helmet Walhalla collecting forum.
M38 ET66 German Paratrooper/Fallschirmjäger Double Decal Helmet w/ Splinter Cover
I was lucky enough to find this matching pair from a 50+ year old collection in April 2015. The 1st pattern splinter helmet cover is my second in all my years of collecting. The 1st pattern style cover with hooks are extremely rare. The wear on the exterior of the helmet is consistent with a helmet cover being applied over the top during war time. Concussion pads on this one are the black foam style which is fine for a higher lot number double decal. It also features the friction style chinstrap buckle.

Both helmets came out of the Washington DC area from the Veteran’s son. Also included were Mr. Sheehan’s discharge papers and something extra special.

In the background you can clearly hear the bombardment occurring. Attached is a link to YouTube. Listen for the name and watch for the discharge papers in the video I created.

Twin M40 Q64 Waffen SS Double Decal Helmets
Both very rare helmets are part of my personal collection. Each helmet features a double decal which is rare in an M40 helmet configuration. Both helmets displays authentic and factory applied Q style decals with very low production numbers. The helmet on the left is stamped 475 and outfitted with a 1940 dated zinc liner band. The helmet on the right is stamped 478 which is only 3 production lots away from the helmet on the left. Helmet on right is outfitted with a 1940 reinforced aluminum liner band. Each helmet has a different font maker mark which would explain the different liner bands. Although they are both early 1940 production they were manufactured and assembled at different periods. Both are out of the “Woodwork” helmets.
