This is a textbook original WW2 German helmet net. The Germans made only one style of these; although they came in different colors. The cord are made from strands of natural Jute material. Not Hemp and not what modern twine is made from. This net has its original circumferential drawstring intertwined into the mesh and it has a zinc-coated ring at the end of this draw sting. There are two hooks at the front which are likewise zinc-coated. They are intended to use the front portion of the net as a veil which can be drawn up over the helmet. My Name is Ken Niewiarowicz and This net comes with my lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
