M40 RAD single decal German combat helmet, « Reichsarbeitsdienst »
A really nice and rare untouched example of a former M1940 Heer single decal German combat helmet that was reissued for the RAD « Reichsarbeitsdienst ». The helmet is an « ET66 » with an early lot number of « 353 ». The helmet's exterior is in a typical feldgrau matte painted finish. Some soiling with a dust and dirty appearance remains untouched. The split pins are complete and firmly still secured to the helmet with some paint retention. The « RAD » decal has been nicely field applied over the slight shadow of the Heer decal. It rates at 95%. This can be seen in the excellent detailed photos below. Some normal to typical wear on the helmet is present. The interior is undisturbed and in its original as found state. The liner system is complete. Leather is very nice, right in its natural light brown color and nicely ink stamped 58 for size. Chinstrap is complete, maker marked and dated « G.SINGER KLATTAU 1941 ». Dome is nicely stamped and readable. Plenty of dust, dirt and natural debris accumulation present around the liner band. A choice and scarce combat helmet particularly in this condition.
