    Default M35 relic DD from LAtvia

    Hi all,
    This latest relic shell came from forum member Maris ( Ostlandigger ) and is a nice (former ) double decal. It is a small size 62 and has had the tricolour scratched off and a field repaint. I think this was well encrusted by sand and has been cleaned after recovery - there are scratches in the base paint from some overzealous person ( I think )
    Still it is a nice complete example if only a shell - I think the lot number is 4057 ( the 4 is very faint ) but I cannot see the maker as there is sand / grit encrustation - any idea going by the rounded shape?

    Cheers, Dan

    *bump*
    Any ideas on the maker? or the scratches ( which on second viewing seem to be on the original paint layer )

    I think the "roundness" to helmets is more prominent on the 60 and 62cm sizes as well as some makers ( ET as Wayne has pointed out )
