    Default Lw sd m35

    Met the wife of a vet who had been a member of the same VFW post as I. The gentleman was a WW2 vet served in Europe and had a small collection of items. He was a Staff Sgt, infantry, serving in the 4th Armored Div. Held the CIB, Bronze Star and Purple Heart. I saw his European Theater ribbon which had four campaign stars on it. He passed away this past summer and the wife asked me to look at several helmets he had as part of a very nice collection. This is a M35 SD Lufty he had. Wife said he sent home as least one helmet but she doesn't recall which one it was, she just remembers it coming in the mail in mid 1945. The other helmets he collected over the years. The other helmets are a tan double decal M40, an SD WH M40, a SD M40 with what looks like the remains of a KM decal, SD SS M40, the SD SS has a replacement chin strap, don't know if it's real. Wife stated he had not bought anything in many many years, but would never sell any of them. Wish I had a better camera. I will try to post pics of the others at a later date. Merry Christmas.
