Straight from USA – a honest and very rare wintercamo helmet. Started its life as a double decal Luftwaffe M35 helmet that was camouflaged using white wash. The white paint shows combat damaged and is very fragile of peeling of, this was of course done like this because it would be easy te remove once the winter was over. Therefor it is so hard to find wintercamo helmets in this condition. The helmet is named to German soldier ‘Van Morts’ who carved his initials on the back in the camouflage paint and painted his name inside. A swastika is painted on the side, most likely by the American veteran who captured is, as a souvenir. The white swastika is actually the genuine white paint where he painted around with black. On this same spot the luftwaffe eagle is still visible as well. The liner is well worn but remains complete. Its an early aluminum example, matching with this type of helmet, dated 1939. The chin strap is present but the tip is broken off. A very nice and original white wash helmet with a extra veteran touch to it!
