Museum quality reproduction USA Paratrooper M1 Helmet Liner 'A' yokes, used to attach the chin-cup to the liner. These were only found on Westinghouse liners - the other manufacturers had different webbing and buckles. We believe these are the best 'A' yoke liner suspension webbing straps available on the market.
The buckles are the malleable iron alloy type coated in a OD #7 enamel finish. They were not made out of brass until after WW2, so if you come across brass ones they are incorrect for a WW2 helmet.

The 'Freikorps Sauerland' decal is found on NS M42 Helmets. It is likely they came from a single unknown manufacturer.
We have created this from an original and have also copied the known 'defects' on the original e.g. the offset swastica and offset left shield side. This without doubt is the worlds best decal!
WW2 German Helmet Kriegsmarine 'Border' Eagle ET & SE Decal
The 'Border' eagle is found on ET M35 and SE M35 Helmets and on all 'reissued' Kriegsmarine Helmets. It is known as the 'bordered' ET eagle as there is a raised line running round the outside of the gold eagle in black/grey/green ink. It is effectively three dimentional and you can feel this when you run your finger over the decal. This was because it was made in two separate print runs and we have recreated this on our 1950's screen printing blocks.
This decal is highly accurate and in our opinion blows any other Kriegsmarine decal out of the water! Notice the curved inner right wing, the outward protruding middle wing tips and the dot on the right talon - all original features and usually missed on cheaper decals!

This cap has been made to replicate one worn by the Waffen SS Ground Troops, Cavalry or reconnaissance units. The waffenfarbe is either aged white or aged faded yellow, it is difficult to tell which it is and we did this on purpose as some caps did try a dye their waffenfarbe when the colours came into regulations.
