Up for sale is an original WWII issue chromed steel M35 German Helmet. It is in overall excellent condition and includes the original leather liner and leather chin strap, both of which are still intact and in excellent condition as well, especially considering their age and history. This is one exceptionally nice, fantastic looking piece! The helmet is stamped N. 64 along the left side of the skirt, indicating that is was made by Vereinigte Deutsche Nickelwerke AG, Schwerte during the war and is a size 64 (medium) helmet. The back of the skirt is also stamped E. 91 and the liner is marked within a circle as a size 57. UPDATE: I have received quite a few questions, comments and offers on this piece. So I would like to provide some additional insights on it. I believe this helmet was chromed by a biker in the 1960’s or 1970’s, as was popular in the “Easy Rider” time period. I do not dispute that this may detract from the piece from a “purist” military collector’s standpoint. However, as it happens, these helmets do have a strong cult following and are extremely collectible to those who lived through the 1960’s and 1970’s and truly loved the freedom and rebelliousness of those times. I myself bought it for this very reason and I believe it is important to preserve history in ALL time periods. It doesn’t stop once the main event is over. So while you are welcome to present your case that this piece may have been altered from its original appearance, you will never convince me (and many, many others like me) that it is not infinitely cooler now than it ever was when it came off the German line in WWII. I can honestly say that this helmet is almost always the first item people want to see when I show my collection! Note the price on this sale has been dropped pretty close to rock bottom. There are very few of these “freedom” helmets left in existence and I’m really in no rush to sell it. Please read this description carefully and examine all the pictures, then decide for yourself whether or not this item will suit your purposes before purchasing.
