Robert Lubstein Berlin No 55 Erel German Parade Helmet
This auction is for a rare German parade helmet. The inner label reads "Robert Lubstein Berlin No 55 Eingetr. Warenzeichen Erel." This helmet is covered with green fabric around the center and its top and visor are made of a fiber composite material that's brown on the outside and green inside. There are two vent holes with mesh on each side and two holes on the end that do not have mesh. There is also a sewn in hole whose purpose is unknown to us. The helmet has a metal holder on each side for a strap and one of them still has the small metal clip on it. Inside there is a light colored lining of leather or another leather like material. The lining is stamped with the Erel name and logo. The inner strap on the lining is partially intact. This helmet measures approximately 7" inches wide, 9.75" inches long, and 6.25" inches tall. It's in good condition with a minor amount of scuffing. Please scroll down to view our photos. This auction has no reserve price so don't miss your chance to win. Place your bid now!

Information from the German Helmets website:

"Light weight helmets were manufactured in both aluminum and a fiber composite material and were available to officers on a private purchase basis for ceremonial and parade use. Generally speaking, older men often chose to purchase these light weigh models as opposed to wear the standard combat helmet. Fiber parade helmets came in several different patterns...

"...the firm of Robert Lubstein [is] better known as the "Erel" firm for those who collect visor caps. The Erel firm was considered a premier manufacturer of superb quality visor hats and fiber parade helmets, and as such sold them directly as well as through authorized uniform dealers. Many officers had direct access to suppliers stationed locally near their military base, much to the same degree that modern soldiers have access to similar base supply stores."
