Very nice and early battle-worn M35 DD winter camo helmet. The shell is a'Vereinigte Deutsche Nickelwerke (NS)' NS62, Lot Nr.D13, feldgrau finish, wartime brush-painted with white paint that has faded to an off-white in unprotected areas. Some worn patches are now brown with patina. The Heer decal has been overpainted with camo, and the paint has later been scratched away to expose the decal, probably post-war. A lot of the details are obscured, but the Heer decal appears to be a C. Pocher, correct for NS helmets. The National tricolor decal is still largely covered by white camo paint, but patches of red, white and black decal are visible. The Reinforced aluminium M31 liner, band is marked. Leather liner pads are in very good condition, heavily sweat stained. Marked with the soldiers name W. Reviewed and given the thumbs-up all round by the world's most knowledgeable collectors.
