    Yeah, now I really feel like I've been jypped. A little more so than I originally thought. I also picked this one up from the same garage sale for an additional 40. Now I know the liner is completely off and just wrong on this m35(?). Well, a lesson learned indeed. Thanks again, guys.

    It looks like a m40 and I think it has been used post war as i have seen that liner and chinstrap on many post war refurbs.

    Czech heritage on that strap I think. They used many German lids postwar.

    Very cool, did not know that. Maybe a silly question, but do you reckon this was used by a German during time of war as well? Is that hard to determine? Thanks.

    The second one almost certainly yes, the paint might even be original on that one. Any other markings in the shell?

    Here's a few more shots of the front of the helmet. There is another mark inside the shell. I've attached pictures.

    EF62? I'm not so keen on the paint in that pic, the rim is very roughly crimped too?

    IMO the second one is messed with as well - it is post war czechoslovak rework but they used different (bigger head) type rivets on most. They were painted black for CD.
    It looks to be redone to resemble a WWII period helmet.on
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    I'd sell them for shell value to recoup what you can as neither has any collector value.
