Hi , for me it looks like it may be repainted , then had fake decals added and a replaced / messed with liner. Oh and it may be an M40(tough to see the separate "air vents" if it's an M35) IF the steel is even original , it's also in the SS helmet forum and this is Luftwaffe! Leon.

I am not so sure Leon. It looks like a good round bottom tricolor and the expected thick bordered Adler on an M35 shell with a correct reinforced aluminum banded liner. I think it is good. Jim G.
I Agree with Leon, its is a messed with lid.
Thread moved to the correct forum.
I think it is good.

This is like a tennis match ....... good, bad, good, bad, good ......
Me, well I hope it IS good - but those "perfect replica" decals from France are downright scary so I'm withholding judgement, fence sitter that I am.

Came from the same seller as mine but I didn't like or want it and the double decal M42 police was also deemed suspect so passed on that as well...

Well, liner is good!!!.
My opinion, this helmet has too many details to concern.
Shell, paint, decals, sorry but i dont like it.....
Even if its a good one, it will always be an opinion divider.
You can have it in your shelf but you will always be unsure of it.
That is my opinion.
That liner band sure looks like it has been bent in a few times which always worries me as being a sign of being messed with. Could have been someone just looking for a makers mark but still...
You bought a helmet form this individual? How long ago?
