    Default M35 DD Luftwaffe helmet for review

    Hello all,
    I have een this double decal Lufty for sale and wanted to ask your opinions on it. The bird decal is too far gone to say one way or the other but what do you think of the national shield? It looks to have been liberated/dug out??

    As far as I can see the rest looks original. I know know it isn't minty but if it is going cheap do you think it's worth a punt?

    All comments appreciated, cheers, Chris.

    The shell and decals looks like they were scrubbed of an over paint. It is possible, but hard to tell for sure - but it could have been a white wash over paint that was scrubbed off. Looking at the interior skirt and around the tri-color, I think it it was most likely a period grey over paint.

    Forgot to add, if cheap enough, it is worth acquiring as it is original (though likely scrubbed) helmet.

    Thanks relicz,
    Now you have pointed it out I can see traces of the overpaint around the vent holes as well. It's a pity someone has scrubbed the hell out of it - I would have liked it with the overpaint!

    Possibly scrubbed I agree. If it was cheap enough though I'd still pick it up. It's nice that it still has the chinstrap too.

    Definitely not worth a true dd Luftwaffe helmet, but for the right price and if you like it, wouldn't be a terrible buy.

    Seller is asking 400 GBP for it which is around $650 USD - Too much in my opinion with all things considered. Think I would prefer to wait until a better one comes along??

    For another 600 you can get a nice one. Keep waiting.

    I wonder if the tri color is a variant of some kind, but maybe it is just the wear that makes it look...strange. The chinstrap, liner, dates, and paint all add up to an original DD Luft. $650 isn't a bad price in my opinion, if you could talk the guy down to $600 this one may be worth picking up as a starter DD. The Tri color would display nicely showing the right side.
