It's a real M35 shell but it looks like a post war liner!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Shell is an old relic with for sure a postwar liner and strap.
Hi, Gunny's about summed it up. Leon.

2 possibilities exist..this helmet shell migrated it way to Jakarta during or after the Third Reich period. Other facts point that there was a 1930s German presence in Makassar away for the main larger Java island. Makassar was exporting their brand of ebony wood to Germany for many of their textiles and wood work..including Early SS dagger grips.
Nice Find Regards Larry

I see, so that's why explain why the liner is different in condition and appearance compared with the shell. But i never thought about the chinstrap though. I thought it's the same age.
It's great to have pros or experienced ones in our side when dealing with appraising. Thank you everyone, really appreciate it.
Ah interesting, i never thought about that sir. As far as i know, there's many german or german descent lived in here during pre-war. In fact i just got a late weimar era (dated 1932) magazine in here. I guess a german once bought that. I'll share it soon about the magazine btw. And thank you for the info especially that Makassar, great to hear it.
