The interior of this helmet is a size 59 and for whatever reason, the flange area of the interior has been painted in some places, black. Unfortunately this covers the maker mark size. The interior in beautiful German script, it has the trooper’s name Gunther. It has the original chin strap. The exterior, as one would expect on a 42, shows considerable wear, the paint rates 75% and the decal does have scratches and wear, but still a solid piece and good looking combat helmet.
