This original WWII German manufactured M35 helmet began its life as a double decal, prior to undergoing a wartime refurbishment. The inside brim is size stamped ET64 lot number 4485, denoting mid-1939 production by the Eisenhüttenwerke, Thale factory. The stampings correspond with a confirmed Waffen SS helmet recorded in Brian Ice's research on German helmet lot numbers. The interior retains its original size 57 leather liner. The rear brim of the helmet displays a faint, hand-written name belonging to the original owner. The helmet's split pins and washers are all original and show no signs of tampering.
