100% original, WW2 German size 68 M35 helmet (restored). It has the very rare, pre-war gothic ET stamp. The lot number is 2730. The shell is original. The paint, split pins, liner and chinstrap are all high quality reproductions. The paint shade is darker in person. Photos were taken in bright light. Helmet is in great condition. I stripped this shell down to the steel and there is absolutely no putty, or auto-body filler, it’s just German WW2 steel. Helmet was painted in a lightly textured, gray-green finish. I applied several layers, which has obscured the markings. The air vents are slightly mismatched, so one was replaced at some point. Size 60 leather liner. Marked as a 61, but the leather is very thick and new, making it fit slightly smaller.
