This listing is for a GUARANTEED entirely 100% original New Zealand Second World War era. Early "Raw Edge" type that does not have the swaged-on Stainless Steel edge (IE was MADE without added rim). The helmet retains 90+% of its original wartime green-sandy non-reflective paintwork.
NOT TOUCHED-UP since it was made during WW2. The black rings seen on the helmet bowl are from the liner of another helmet that was stacked-on-top. These marks would apparently wash-away with Benzine (Petrol). Helmet chinstraps are stamped " Mk III " and Dated 1942. The actual maker of this helmet is not known to me.
NO maker markings, NO size details (small), NO Broad Arrow marking, NO "nPz" marking. There would be VERY FEW of these unique NZ-made helmets in collections outside of New Zealand. Any questions please MESSAGE ME.
