GERMAN WWII LUFTWAFFE M.35 DOUBLE DECAL COMBAT HELMET, EX TROPICAL PAINT.
A Q64 Luftwaffe double decal M.35 combat helmet, the skull retains much of its original blued finish. At one time in its life it has been a tropical painted helmet, residue of the tropical paint around the M.35 air vents, all of the liner retaining rivet heads have lost their blue paint, damage to the wings of the Luftwaffe eagle and to the edge of the national tricolour, as can be seen from our web images. On inverting the helmet it is with an M.40 liner and the residue of the tropical paint can be seen around the whole interior rim of the helmet. The 8 tongued liner all good, supple and complete with its original chinstrap, which has faint traces of a 19 possibly 42 date. The liner band is aluminium with the 1940 rounded edge strap posts with the liner band dated ‘1940’. We believe that this helmet has been restored by a unit level repair depot and then re-issued for the European theatre. The exterior paint has been removed for Europe.
