From my personal collection: Early produced M35 army steel helmet in ‘attic found’ condition. The helmet was found in France in the Alsace region and remains entirely in untouch condition, having a great patina! The helmet started as an apple green coated double decal helmet in 1938 but was overpainted with rough field green camouflage paint due regulations most likely in 1940 before the invasion of Western Europe. Therefore the party decal has been covered and remains hidden under the paint. The eagle decal on the left side was left open and shows nice aging and patina. Inside the helmet a 1938 dated aluminum band liner is original installed. The split pins remain straight and unmessed with. The leather is stiff but complete and shows normal wear, matching with the helmet. The chin strap is partially present, the tip has broken off, but aluminum buckle remains complete. Inside the apple green color remains visible under the liner. Shell by ET (I deem), size 62, lot number I cannot read. A very nice untouched M35 helmet!
