Description:

Finished in dark green, with a red/white/black national shield on the left side and a black/silver "SS rune" shield on the right; this combination is unusual for an M42, as the national shield was eliminated in 1940 and the branch-specific decal in 1942. The interior of the skirt is marked "ckl64/5578" in the rear, with a "C.SCHIELE/LOBURG" marked chinstrap and "56" in ink on the webbing. Good, with wear, scratches and spotting overall, some loss/rubbing on the decals, and a rolling texture on the left side of the skirt.
