    Personally, I would advise you save your money. Close ups are needed of the decals. I suspect the liner may have been replaced.

    Agree with Todd. Are you looking for a decent helmet or specifically a DD luft M35? For that money, or maybe a bit more you can find a nice ND or SD helmet.

    Not promoting any dealer site as an example Ken N has a nice (used and slightly abused) M35 reissue with the remains of a single decal. Item #481

    Everyone is different but it's not for me so I wouldn't spend anything. Plus if Todd is right, this has a replaced liner.

    I like used and slightly abused lids on occasion but only if they are a fundamentally sound helmet.

    Its really up to you if you want to spend the money. I see no resale value but if you want a wall hanger and like the look then I would expect to cut the price in half. But that is just me. Look at the site I gave you. A quality dealer. He has a nice clean luft without a liner for $250.

    Hi, I agree with the guys above, personally I would leave this one alone. The liner probably was original to this helmet but was taken out so that the huge split in the shell could be pushed back out in line, and then the liner was placed back in. The decals may be ok but the Adler has certainly been heavily scrubbed/cleaned. Leon.

    Nope not worth the money, you'll get something far better for that price!..

    It could just be my ageing eyes, but it looks to me like it may have had a postwar coat of black paint removed.
    For me that might explain the worn/washed out look of the LW eagle, and the reason the liner might have been removed.
    That is, if it is even original to the shell.
    As the lads are saying, and you have agreed, I'd give this one a miss.
