This is an original untouched WWII German manufactured M35 helmet. The factory and size markings are concealed by paint, however the helmet has been measured and I have determined it is a size 66 most likely produced by the Quist, Esslingen factory. The helmet exhibits an original field repaint as well as remnants of double decals (probably Heer). The helmet's field repaint and decal removal might have occured sometime around August 28, 1943, coinciding with the order from German high command, directing the omission of decals from all helmets. The interior retains its original size 58 leather liner and chinstrap. The liner is marked with the initials 'M.A.' The helmet's leather components have dried over time. The split pins are original to the helmet, however the rear pin is missing.
