The chinstrap is also a very good quality copy and bears the makers name and a date of 1940 to match the helmet. There is also a Heeres abgenommen rubber stamp inside the dome and the style of stamp used is absolutely correct for Quist helmets of this period.
Externally there is a top quality Bigfoot style reproduction birdie attached with a silver foil backing in good condition. Collectors will know that Quist helmets virtually always carried these Bigfoot badges rather than those of any other transfer printers.
Stampings are Q68 and 7309. Paint finish is a light eggshell finish dark green and its really well done. Will not scratch or mark, has been on for years.A terrible shame to part with this one. If you want a very large size Quist SD Heer for your collection or for reenacting this ones for you. I doubt you would ever find better. NOTE: Display head and stand NOT included.
