    SALE. 1957-dated NVA/Kampfgruppen Model 3 Helmet
    Description: Collectors are advised not to be too rigid in using 1956 as the starting date of the NVA/East German armed forces. Not until the following year did the NVA receive enough uniforms and equipment to be considered an effective fighting force. The 1957-dated helmet offered here therefore dates as a shell from the NVA's 1st year as a true army. The external rivets tell us that the helmet began as a Model 1. Most likely it later saw duty as a Model 2 helmet before winding up a Model 3, the last helmet type used by the NVA. The liner is an earlier version of what later became the Model 3 liner; the differences are minor. The liner's front and back head cushions have hardened with age, a common condition with early issue East German helmets.
    Condition: For an early helmet, the 1957 shell is in remarkably good condition. The leather liner is a later replacement, in Mint/Near-mint condition.
    NOTE: If more than 1 helmet, minor variation possible.
