Model 1934 SS Edelstahl Helmet Issued to Foreign Volunteer Personnel, Named-This is an extremely interesting example! Of course, it is a scarce helmet as it is one of the lighter weight Edelstahl produced M-34 style examples. Also interesting is that the runic shield is on the left side as used by foreign volunteer personnel. The party shield was removed at some point per regulations and per order of Himmler. Another interesting fact is that it is named inside. Let’s start with the description and cover some of the facts. It has a pale green finish that remains 85% intact. It is lighter weight but produced in steel. The Pocher produced runic shield is 75% intact. As mentioned, the party shield was removed. Surprisingly, there are no dings or dents, commonly seen on these light weight helmets. The liner is a bit stiff, with some wear and discoloration as well. One of the liner tongues is missing and a few others are torn. The owner wrote his name and other info on one of the tongues. It says “SS Ob. ??? Harlander Eins. K. III”. The liner is size stamped 53. This would make the shell a size 60. The side of the interior is stamped “EDEL”. The original brown leather chinstrap is in place. A scarce offering!
