    SALE. NVA/Police/Kampfgruppen Model 3 Helmet. MINT.

    Description: For the first time ever (we believe) Gowen Militaria is putting on sale MINT condition Model 3 helmetsModel 3 helmets on sale. The Model 3 (or Type 3) helmet is the NVA helmet most frequently seen by collectors. The interior construction is similar to the Model 2 but the leather liner and chin straps differ (see photo), and the foam rubber padding of the Model 3 is less compressed, that is, more like foam rubber. Also, the shell of the Model 3 helmet is flared along both the front and back edges. The Model 1 and 2 helmets are flared around the back edge, but compared with the Model 3 helmet their front edges are not as widely flared.
    Probable dates of use: Early 1970s to 1990.
    Reference sources: Ludwig Baer, The History of the German Steel Helmet, 1916-1945; also Paolo Marzetti, Elmetti/Helmets.
    Sizes: Adjustable: one size fits all.
    Condition: Mint (unissued). NOTE: Unissued helmets may have surface scuffing from storage/transit. Helmet./br>
