Auction has ended.
This is an authentic Nazi Luftschutz Gladiator Style Air Raid Helmet from WW II. It is worn and there is some light rust on the outside. It has R.L.2 39/10 stamped on the inside back of the brim.
This hat was taken to The Tin Soldier, at 222 Vernon Street in Downtown Roseville, for authentication. The Tin Soldier has been in the war memorabilia business for 33 years and is well qualified to authenticate items like this. If we say in the description that it is Authentic, we are relaying Ken’s, from The Tin Soldier opinion, which we believe is correct. Each item presented is believed to be authentic unless otherwise stated.
