This is a nice M-42 with the exception
of the pencil drawn swastikas on each side of the helmet. We tested a
small area with a pencil eraser and decided to leave it as is. Our general
policy is to not attempt improvements, repairs, or otherwise alter the
condition of a helmet. In this case we were concerned that the eraser
was not lifting the mark adequately and there was risk of the eraser leaving
marks of it’s own.
The liner is original to the helmet and has never been removed. Two of the pins are tight, the third can be moved a small amount. The leather is somewhat stiff and has one small tear from a finger hole to the nearby edge. It looks good, but should be considered somewhat fragile, meaning: don’t wear it.
Markings are CKL64 and 4881
