Original EF 66/58 M35 German combat style helmet. It was wartime refinished as per 1940 specifications covering any existing insignia. It is finished in a matte field gray/green having a beautiful patina from weather and age. The split pins are untouched and have the retaining washers in place also untouched. The liner was updated when it was refinished with a zinc plated New model liner system. The chinstrap is original and full length with aluminum hardware. There is an apparent glue repair where the long end of the strap was broken but it is well done. The leather shows user wear but all of the fingers are intact and un-torn with no pull throughs. The string is not original but is close to a perfect match to the original issue string. The shell is stamped EF 66 by the left ear but is weakly stamped and hard to read the batch number is #21478.
