German Helmet - Spanish Civil War?


Recommended Posts

Hello.  I am looking at a German helmet which the owner claims it is from the Spanish Civil War.  How can I verify?

As you look at the  photos, look at the under visor - there is some interesting letters/words painted there.  Do you recognize this?

Also, what helmet model is this?

All input is welcome.  Thanks.  Linas

This link will give you a little more info on the helmet.  Also, a picture with the parade emblem in place.  The helmet that you posted pictures of is in poor condition.  These helmets are not hard to find in very good condition and are not expensive.

Regards,
