Default FJ Helmet Production Numbers.....

I'd be interested to know if there is any information as to approximately how many FJ Helmets the Germans produced.
My guess is a very small number compared to the overall production of M35, M40 and M42 Patterns.
Anyone know the figures?
RAY.

Hi Ray, there are no exact numbers available. It is tough to even come up with an educated guess on this matter. The person who could come up with any documentation as to exact numbers would be quite the hero to the FJ helmet collecting community.

Thanks Willi,
I suspected as much!
I suppose the nearest figure would be to come up with as close an estimate of the number of FJ who served in the period 1939 to 1945.
Difficult one.
RAY.

Intriguing (and old !) question....less than 250,000 I would think.
