Luftwaffe Steel helmet M.35, first pattern - double decal

Recommended Posts

Another nice recent acquisition is this nice early type Luftwaffe M.35 helmet with first pattern eagle (double decal). Condition overall satisfactory, skull and paintwork with aging and weather damage as if exposed to the elements at some time. Original black leather liner has shrunk somewhat, no chinstrap. Both decals are in a very good condition, with just some abrasions, esp. to the national colours. The helmet is a small size and is marked ET62, being an overall size of 62cm, headsize about 53/54. Typically this has the early brass liner rivets. See illustration

Finally, a close-up of the Lufwaffe eagle 1st type. As I mentioned, it is stamped ET62  and with serial number 3762, definitely an early example.

and here's the liner to that Luft M.35 helmet, split at the front due to shrinkage - black leather, or has turned black due to dampness, dirt?
