Fantastic Waffen-SS M35 combat helmet issued with two decals. A well worn helmet with great character!
Leather liner with clear signs of wear and minorbits missing but with its leather still extremely soft. The original cord was period time replaced with a private leather strap. The prongs of the rivets were never opened and are still absolutely flat. Helmet and liner always belonged together like that. The size of the liner is 58/59.
The shell is Q68 marker and size marked. The lot number is 20726. The helmet is marked with the initials of the soldier "W.G.". to the reverse. Painted.
Original apple-green factory paint as well as a darker, later, wartime paint. Clearly worn. About 85-90% of the original color is still covering the shell which shows a small dent to the top.
The SS rune decal is still about 85%-90%. The swastika decal is about 70%.
