M35 SS DD Stahlhelm

  1. #1

    Default M35 SS DD Stahlhelm

    -003.jpg-011.jpg-010.jpg-009.jpg-008.jpg-007.jpg-006.jpg-004.jpg-002.jpg-005.jpg-001.jpgFollowing are a series of photos of the M35.



    Hopefully this will give more clarity to those offering their opinions on the veraciity of the helmet.

    It may be difficult to see in the photos but the party decal outline is cleary visible under the camo paint.

    Again to those doubters I can only say that this helmet is one of only three items in my collection where I personally know 100% of the provenance.

    Sorry I am not one of the Fans of this helmet either. As said to you before the decals are not real, as is the paint. 2 other things I will point out is the Helmet is an M40, not M35, and the lot number has 2 matches, both are for KM helmets. I an not saying it has to be a KM but its a very strong possibility.

    With all due respect, if you are so certain yours is real, then why post for opinions?

    What is the provenance then?

    I am afraid your M35 is an M40 Q with a DN code typically made 1943. M40 SS were virtually all single decal except a rare handful, and those double decal's are exclusively 1940 made with no DN code. All Q SS were made with Q decals from factory, not CA Pocher as yours has. Plus your CA Pocher decal is a known fake, the camo paint is postwar applied and aged.

    Teutonic nights I'm afraid the example your showing does nothing to help reichss, it's an M42 with a completely different decal factory applied, either an ET or NS/SE decal.

    Sorry reichss, this is a fake SS.

    No problem but it would be best to show an M40 Q with a correct Q decal. I don't want reichss getting any more confused, the subject matter has already been oversimplified and he's spending hard earned cash on fakes as a result. What's your source for your helmets reichss?

    As Doug has so eloquently explained this Helmet is one to run away from for all the above reasons !!
