Anyone want to buy a M35 DD Droptail Luftwaffe Helmet?
Found this helmet listed on Gun Broker this evening. The seller wants $749 as a buy it now. It is currently in New Jersey. Looks like a cool helmet, but I don't have the cash right now.....wife says I have reached my limit for the month. Is this a rare lid?

Yes the earlier pattern luftwaffes don't come up to often
Is that Tricolor shield trying to imply that this is a Condor Legion Luftwaffe helmet?
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
liner is poor but these are my favorite DD's.
I like these early lids.............I think the liner is broken near the chinstrap bale
I have one of these early birds, the early liner is single band aluminum, which often broke, hence why they went to double band on the later ones, rough condition reflects the price, no great deal here, but the early ones are less seen and one of my favs.
I think the price is fairly decent as well.
Here's one I got a while back:
