The shell has 3 small rivets and is marked II/58. The leather liner riveted (2-lug removable rivets) onto the circle while the 4 grey small "cushions"are sown onto the metal circle.

The chin strap rings do not bear the leather protection at the back to protect the skin.

The shell is 1st type with 3 small rivets and stamped  H 9. 59 (or 56). I am not quite sure of it all. . The1st type inside device once supporting  the liner, just like above helmets, was removed ; it can still be seen inside the shell where only the rivets remain. 6 new small bits were fixed onto the shell inside just like the helmet below.

The shell was obviously totally repainted before the helmer was reissued... confirming once again that everything was used till worn out in the NVA, and then could even be given a new life afterwards

The liner is "one size fits all" made of leather and plastic. The leather (lightly marked NVA) is sown onto the plastic circle. Two of the chin strap rivets, on both sides, are plastified .

Last type shell : no rivets at all.

"One size fits all" liner is the same as above.
