I am posting this helmet as my welcome to Doug as our new Helmet Forum moderator. Although I started collecting in 1956, I never found an acceptable double decal M-35 helmet until the SOS six years ago. A buddy of mine had this helmet walked in to him by an old collector who had dealt with my buddy. As we had tables together, he handed it to me and said "do you want it?" I said, you bet! It turned out that my friend Bob Hritz actually got this helmet at the Great Western Show back in the early 80's directly from a vet walk-in. He intended to keep it but the seller talked Bob out of it. Like the majority of these pristeen M-35 helmets with double decals and original paint, the provenance goes back to the LAH barracks in Bertchesgarten and a 101st Airbone vet. I guess guarding the Berghof was pretty cushy work during the war and far superior to the Russian Front. The shell is an ET64 with a lot number of 3804. The dome stamp indicates issuance out of Wehrkreis VII in Munich.
