  • $ 26,500


WWII German Luftwaffe Chunky Camouflage Paratrooper Helmet with Portrait-This amazing piece comes with a beautiful, one of a kind painting depicting a paratrooper wearing it. The painting is framed and measures 20” x 16” (including the frame). The painting depicts Major Walter Koch.  Now onto the helmet, which is a stunning example if I’ve ever seen one. The chunky sawdust camo finish is rendered in tan, green and dark red. It remains mostly intact. The interior has a tan leather liner which has minor wear and discoloration from use. There is a name written in ink onto the liner. The liner band is zinc and the charcoal colored, neoprene pads are all present. The late war style leather harness is complete, having some wear and discoloration from use.  The rear skirt is stamped ckl 71 with a lot number of 5211. All paratrooper helmets were produced by Eisenhuttenwerke of Thale.  This is a late war example that most likely did not have a decal originally. Three of the four bolts are the standard spanner type with one flathead screw replacement. A spectacular piece!
