Some of the most undervalued helmets in our opinion are these Luftschutz Gladiator Helmets. They’re some of the neatest looking helmets, with a decal that displays very well on the bookshelf.

This particular one is quite frankly one of the nicest we’ve come across, because it isn’t minty! Like combat helmets, these helmets should look used because of the nature of their use. The wearer, German civilians, would have been assisting in the clean up efforts after air raids, so having one of these that looks the way this does signifies it was actually used and didn’t sit in the closet idle during the war.

On the exterior we see a good deal of scuffing and scratching, and a really nice “burnt” tone, likely from the smoke and soot of the air raid aftermath. Despite all of that, the decal on the front is nearly 100% – truly amazing! The chin strap is complete, but in used condition to match the helmet condition. The underside of this Luftschutz helmet reveals a liner that is in exceptional condition, with the liner tongue string still present. We also see the size stamp, “56”, and the name of the civilian this helmet belonged to written neatly into the leather. Lastly, on the back rim of the helmet we see the typical decal on most all of these Luftschutz helmets, as well as the typical maker and batch numbers stamped into the metal.

Don’t pass up this helmet! It’s rare we see such a unique combination of real wartime use, coupled with such a well preserved decal and a named liner to boot!
