This is an original WWII German manufactured M35 helmet shell. The inside brim is size stamped EF62 along with the lot number 21441, denoting early-1938 production by the Emaillierwerke A.G., Fulda factory. The second photo details the outlines of a set of presumably Heer and national colors decals visible beneath the helmet's textured field repaint. The front and rear of the helmet have wartime wire affixed for the purpose of a camouflage tarnnetz. The interior retains its original liner band and partial chinstrap. The helmet's split pins and washers are all original and show no signs of tampering.
