    Default M35 Advice

    Hi gents, came across this helmet on a local equivalent of craigslist; The original photo was small so I asked for more photos, I've received these; and I've no idea what I'm looking at. I can't tell if it's a repro, post war model or a foreign variant. Help?

    It's not a WO2 configuration I can say that much.

    The liner is wrong, the chinstrap is wrong. The helmet may be a Chinese copy.
    maker/size stamps and lot number ( if there is one ) would help make
    a better judgement on the shell itself.........

    Yeah, I know for certain it's not WWII, just making sure it's not some foreign or post war model (as I'd be interested in those too.). No lot numbers that I can see; so I'll classify it under bad copy and stay away.

    Thanks,

    I'd be thinking a Chinese copy.

    it's a copy. besides the liner and the strap also the airvent rivits are a give-away.
    Notice that the hole in the airvent is smaller then on a genuin M35

    It might be a genuine issue from an Asian army, I forget where exactly but a country out there copied the M35 and used it themselves. I don't know the liner though.
