This ET68 Model 1938 helmet shell was supplied by a customer in sand blasted condition. The shell is a semi-relic, in other words there is deep pitting all over, both inside and outside. There were smooth areas around the decal area and front left but that was about it. There is a hairline crack on the top of shell and some tiny pin prick sized holes also on the top.
The customer wanted an early war green painted single decal refurbishment. The bolts and chinstraps have been added for photographic effect - they are not part of the refurbishment.
This was a pretty straightforward refurbishment. The M1 helmet was missing a bale, both chinstraps and had several dents on the top. Our job was to replace the bale add the aged chinstrap to match the helmet and remove the dents.
Our Type 1 M38 Paratrooper Helmet chinstraps are hand made by a military leatherworker who aims for 100% accuracy in his work. These chinstraps were the very first version to be worn on the M38 Helmet pre-WW2 and some were also worn during WW2 even after the introduction of the second (gate buckle), version. The Type 1A was made before 16th of June 1938 and the 1B after this period up to approximately the Netherlands invasion (10th and 11th May 1940).
