    Sorry Mate,

    Looks like an M35 that may have been in Norweigen hands for a while before someone sprayed it black and stuck on the SS decals.

    Similar deal with the M42 but the Eagle is on the wrong side.

    Both look untouched on the inside but like I say the M35 looks to me Norweigen on the inside (colour). Possible restoration?

    The experts will put you straight.

    Best Regards

    Jock

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    I am sorry to say that Jock is totally correct. Both of these helmets are postwar creations based upon Norwegian reissue German helmets.

    Cheers, Ade.
