    Default M35 SS Helmet for Review Pls

    Evening guys

    A friend of mine has had this helm for while, its a Q64, lot number 20794. I am not sure about it, i am working away from home at the moment, no books or reference with me, what do you think? The liner is not original to the helm, As always, opinions greatly appreciated !!!

    IMHO it's bad. Looks like a "pimped" relic helmet and the liner is not original to the helmet. Rust pitting. I am not "into" SS decals so i will stand down from that one.

    The decal looks somewhat convincing to me. I'm leaning towards the decal might be good. The helmet is a reissue, and I can see the remnants of what might be another SS decal underneath the present one. Best wait for Doug in my opinion.

    I know what you mean. You post and then the reason for posting shrinks the more you look at your own pics I have tried that a few times

    I would go as far as saying i can see "white wash"/winter camo. Still a relic lid to me. With a post war applied liner.

    Yeah the liner is not original to the helmet, knew that, but the paint on it and marks around the decal did concern me, but the decal does have me stumped.

    The helm does have writing in the skirt, soldiers name and number and 10/SS Pz Gren Rgt 22

    Clearly not a Q decal so presumably a Pocher reissue if it was correct which in my opinion it is not , it almost looks painted and look at the bottom of the right hand decal !!
