Up for sale is an Original WW2 German Helmet, Model 35, size 62, batch number 3071. Includes all split pins, metal liner and leather band. This helmet has great character, its exterior paint and interior appears to be all original, please look at photos and analyze to see what you think. The pictures I posted reveal a dark color, but in pure light- its somewhere between a dark Luft blue-grey or a Dunkel color- late war. Very difficult to ascertain due to the age/patina. So this is why I say it gives it “great character” and a nice piece to chat about. The leather liner is very stiff/old and sweat marks are visible, – No dome stamp. I would opine this helmet was likely sent back to a factory at some point in the later part of war for refurbish and re-issue replace liner/band, chin straps and new paint-yes they did this to re-issue much needed equipment for use during the war. I want to point out there does appear to be a “very” minor dent under the (if wearing/2nd picture) right side, but not sure if that’s. More of a hole in the paint abrasion? Never buried in the ground, came from a pvt collector’s collection who has had it for a long time. Thank you – Best!
