    I don't think so... I have a bad feeling about this helmet, it might just be me, but it seems too perfect...
    Best Regards

    Patrick and Vegar, this appears to be a nice textbook reissued M35 which was overpainted according to regulations at the time. The "yellowing" of the decal is due to the protective lacquer toning over the past 65-70 years and is actually a good sign. Note the natural crazing of the decal, which appear to be an ET decal on at ET helmet, perfect match. The chinstrap looks ok from here but better photos are needed to tell for sure. The condition of the helmet is in nice condition, shame of the hit on the eagle head, but a helmet being "too perfect" is a good thing. ;-) Condition is everything, don't judge one because of condition, judge a helmet based upon the details.

    Bicho, I would highly recommend you do not mess with the tricolor. Liberating the tricolor (exposing the tricolor) would seriously devalue the helmet and you are altering the historical piece left by the soldier, and removing it from a regulation re-issue. If you want a helmet where you can see the double decals on an M35 Heer, just go buy one. There were several for sale here ww2germanhelmets.com and other reputable dealer sites at reasonable prices.

    I hope this original helmet remains untouched.

    4md, That could be a Dave Shirlin picture (ww2germanhelmets.com) , those are his typical photo angles and lighting. Dave is a first class guy, honest and makes sure his helmets are always 100% legitimate and will never BS a seller or buyer, good integrity with him!

    thanks, is 100000% ORIGINAL To buy in ww2germanhelmets,
    Naturally it is PERFECT and ORIGINAL.
    It is necessary To judge the faults!! Not the perfection

    The helmet to be preserved and not to manipulate it.

    Thank you very much DougB, to be grateful very much for your opinions, really you know about what you speak

    Well Doug got in before me AGAIN !!, I like this helmet , a good honest untouched M35 , decent liner and i think a decent chin strap, id like to see a close up of the tri-colour area, from here i reckon it could have been removed before repaint, but a close up would help. As doug said , shame about the adlers head but it adds to the period look and is nicely toned, well done mate you did good
