The helmet is the multi-piece variety constructed of three pieces, being the dome and the front and rear visors. The exterior paint is approximately 95% intact, with some minor exterior spots and scrapes, the scrapes being mostly on the edge of the rim. There is a small spot of surface rust on the back center of the helmet. The Luftschutz decal is virtually 100% intact. The helmet has a dyed cloth liner and its original chin strap. The interior of the rear rim bears the manufacturer decal and the impressed designation of "RL 2-38/28". Overall excellent condition showing some signs of age but few signs of use.
