This is a WW2 German M35 Afrika Korps helmet complete with early war liner. Size is 66 cm. Shell is marked ET66 but makers mark and lot # are faint. Exterior of helmet is painted early war apple green, overpainted field gray and camoed with pinkish-tan. The interior is apple green with tan camo on interior of skirt and visor. There is heavy wear to the paint with numerous chips, scratches, and light rust. The helmet shell is otherwise in excellent condition with no cracks, dents, or unwanted holes. The 1938 dated liner has damage to 3 of the tongues and is dry but otherwise intact. There is no chinstrap and no visible decals. Although this is original WW2 German M35 helmet shell, the interior and exterior painting and aging are newly done and the original liner has been added. Techniques used to paint and age this helmet make it appear absolutely dead-on real whether viewed from across the room or in your hand. To prevent dishonest resale interior of the helmet has been marked as a repaint. Marking is under the left air vent and is hidden with the liner in place. Here’s your chance to own what appears to be a real DAK “pink” helmet for a fraction of the cost.
