This is a WW2 German M35 Afrika Korps helmet with early war liner. Exterior of the helmet is painted Luftwaffe blue gray and overpainted pinkish-tan camo. The interior is Luftwaffe blue gray. There is heavy wear to the paint with numerous chips, scratches, and light rust.
The helmet shell is otherwise in excellent condition. Tips of 3 liner tabs have been rodent chewed.
There is no chinstrap and no visible decals. Although this is original WW2 German M35 helmet, the interior and exterior painting and aging are newly done and the 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.
