Kurland German helmet restoration project

This Helmet was found in 2012 in the side of a German bunker on it own with no remains and was donated for a restoration project to Tim Poppa.
As you can see the process goes from the as found relic helmet to an almost new looking SS helmet.

Shell : CKL 64 – 3371
Liner : R B Nr 0102350111 – 1944 – 64 n A | 56
Split pins : SS 44 , SS and one non cleaned
With special Thanks to Tim Poppa for allowing these photos and details to be published and his amazing effort in restoring this Helmet.

      Hi Henrick
      Yes we thought the same ! The helmet was donated for restoration which we had no input in and he did a great job but as you say decal in the wrong place not sure why to be fair will ask him and let you know.
