Quist batch numbers
Hello Everyone, my wife bought me a reconditioned Quist M35 helmet ( for reenactment) it was sold as an original shell- repro liner, chin strap, paint etc. the price was good and it is perfect for what I want. However it has a 5 figure lot No ( on the back skirt 25442)
All the research I have done suggests that lot Number were only 4 digit.

Quist M35s went to cca 26000-27000 as i heard. So no problem.
That's the highest number I've seen on a Q M35, personally. Probably produced in 1940 right at the switch to M40 production.
Damn Mo it is 4:00 PM on New Years eve and you can still see ????
What in the hell is this younger generation coming to.
Hello, the numbers could be correct. You should buy the book from Brian Ice called: German Helmet Lot Numbers 1935-1945, Ongoing Research. It is a very good book and it is not expensive. You can get it on ebay.
