German WWII Model 40 Danish “Schalburg“ SS Helmet-This unique example appears on page 183 of the Beaver – Hicks SS Helmet book. The black paint remains 80% intact. This was originally a double decal helmet before it was painted a gloss black by the Danish volunteers. Their unit was called the “Schalburg Korps”. These helmets were used by the guard battalions to protect the railheads and crossroads from sabotage. You can clearly see under the black paint that this was a double decal example, the SS decal is 85% intact and is referenced as a Danish pattern. The size 58 liner with its original drawstring is in very nice condition with some light fraying around the edges. The interior has also been painted black and therefore we cannot make out the maker information or the batch number. There is additional writing on the interior which says Privat and the numbers 15/2. Privat is the Danish word for Private and the number is the unit he was attached to. The initials HK probably belonged to one of the owners. A unique helmet, but not for the faint of heart.
