Luftwaffe M35 Double Decal Helmet. First Pattern

Luftwaffe M35 Double Decal Helmet. First Pattern

Code: 56542


A particularly nice example of a Luftwaffe M35 Double Decal Helmet with first pattern eagle.

An ET62 with a lot number of 3795, the shell retains most of the original factory blue / grey finish with just the minor abrasion you would expect during service.

The eagle is perhaps 85% intact with slight rubbing evident. On the right side the nation tricolour has some loss but remains very good.

Inside, the liner band is reenforced aluminium with a 1938 date just visible, the leather tongues showing only light use. They remain supple and are complete with the drawstring. The name Schmidt 1V is written in ink.

Finally, the chinstrap is very good but has been shortened slightly.

A very nice example of an early Luftwaffe Helmet
