Heer M35 "battle-damaged" sawdust camo helmet - Q64

Description

A stunning combat-seen M35 helmet which was brought home as a souvenir by the soldier. The helmet was badly damaged by shrapnel when not being worn. The shrapnel has hit the shell, blow off the ring of the ventilation hole and the rivet and damaged the inner liner ring and the liner itself. Liner, cord, ring and chin strap are absolutely original to this helmet.

The shell comes with full original very rough "sawdust" paint to the outer shell and full original factory paint to the inside. It is "Q64" marked and "R.K." named.

A unique piece of history!
