    Default Possible Waffen SS polizei

    Hello, i am new on this forum,

    I have a M35 DD helmet, found in the ground off Belguim, when i bought it on a militairia (market), excuus for grammatical i am Dutch, it shows the a mark off a left decal. I bought it. When i cleaned the helmet with household products a richt decal appiret. I thought waffen SS. A few months later, i showed the helmet on the Dutch WW2 war site and i brought the helmet back to the market again. On the site the response is neutral and on the militairia market they said probbilly SS polizei. All the people said i can not claim it SS, butt the showed their respect for this M35. (strange).

    If you can see, the right decal sown some rune and have a black stripe on the outside off the decal, the helmet is "Appegroen".
    I know, the pictures could be better, butt i try.
    Please can you help me, greetings, Mark, from Holland.

    Welcome Benno, I am afraid I do not see anything from these pics that indicates Waffen SS or a Polezei, this could be an M35 DD Heer as well. The white decal remnants appear to be the broken down remnants of the cellulose base found on all decals.

    I would just classify this as an unknown service branch/relic.

    Cheers
    Doug

    I think I am right in saying that it was the un-bordered decals that were attributed to the SS police. This is a nice "salty" helmet, but difficult to determine which branch it is from.

    I see what might be the remnant of a border but then would expect to see the same remnant of a rune in the top right area of the decal remnant. If you have louped the decal remnant and see any pulver that might be more of a determining factor as the pictures to me aren't conclusive enough to determine if it is a WSS helmet or not.

    Why is it horrible? It is a relic of history, no matter what service branch this helmet was assigned to. It isn't worth a nickel more being an ex-SS relic or an ex-Heer helmet if that is your angle.
