Luftwaffe M35 Double Decal Helmet
A good example of an early Luftwaffe M35 Double Decal Helmet, being and NS64 with a lot number of D125.
The helmet retains the original Luftwaffe grey smooth finish with both decals in place but with the eagle showing service wear evenly distributed over the entire decal. Commensurate wear is apparent to the painted shell but there is no damage.
The liner band is an early non reinforced example dated 1937 and displays no splits in the metal. The liner leather is without loss and remains very supple with all tongues held in place by the drawstring. There is a good clear 1938 dated acceptance stamp to the dome.
The chinstrap is very good but no markings remain as it has been shortened slightly by the wearer.
Generally a very nice helmet and rare to find with both decals in place.
