    I havenīt better photos, but does this Kriegsmarine M35 double decal helmet with liner look original? Your input would be much appreciated..

    The chinstrap is not good. Hard to tell without closesup pics that it's KM or a toned Heer. Looks KM but decal closeups are needed. The "red" in the tri-colour looks awfully "red" to me. Shell, split pins and liner look OK....If you can get more closeup pics....please do post them!
    Good luck!

    Rob is correct, this could easily be a toned Heer. Much better photos are required.

    Kriegsmarine helmets were not often reissued like this one appears to be , usually they kept their smooth paint and the tricolor was scratched off.

    Can you read the maker and lotnr ?

    I quite like the look of this one. My money is on it being a toned Heer. As Rob has said the chinstrap is iffy to say the least but its good to see an interesting lid on WRF again, they have been a bit scarce lately.

    looks like a 100 % honest toned heer (or KM) the shin strap looks like it has been there for ever, it isnt original to the helmet
    but then so it was a war so they used any measures

    The chinstrap looks like it was taken from an Adrian helmet. I think it's alright.
