WWII German M35 Reissued Single Decal Heer Helmet & Liner Set
This original WWII German M35 helmet has an exceptional combat-used appearance. When this helmet was originally issued, it would have likely exhibited a semi-gloss factory finish and a decal on each side. Following combat use, it underwent a wartime refurbishment, where the helmet was painted inside and out in a textured feldgrau finish and the wearer's left side was adorned with an original (and now well-worn) Heer decal. The wearer's right side may have also exhibited a National Colors decal, which would have likely been removed around March 1940, coinciding with the order from German high command, directing the omission of National Colors decals from all helmets. Unfortunately, the textured finish has obscured the inside brim's size and lot stampings. That said, the shell has been measured and is a confirmed size 64, produced sometime between 1935 and 1940. It comes complete with its original leather liner, drawstring, and aluminum-buckled leather chinstrap - all of which show heavy and consistent use. The split pins and washers are all original and show no signs of tampering, although one has been bent as a result from normal use.
