    Default M35 Helmet/Spanish Civil War

    I was not sure where to post this M35 helmet. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. This M35 style helmet has come up for auction and I note it carries the Fascist crest of Spain. I assume this is a German manufactured helmet for the Spanish Nationalists under Franco. I have never seen one and may pursue this one. The color is a brownish/green. The helmet has been repainted and you cannot see any markings inside. Hopefully, these photos will be sufficient to authenticate this example. NH

    No doubt about it. Shame about the repaint.
    "Fascist crest of Spain" is called the cross of Santiago.

    Is a german 1935 helmet fashioned to comply with the 1943 regulations (which ushered in a helmet of germanic influence but not as well made).
    Spain received some German 1935 helmets during the Spnish civil war and I have been told that after the war France sold to Spain a certain surplus of <<captured>> german helmets.
    All these were impressed into Spanish service along with the local produced one: painted olive drab and with the metal ring at the front to affix the eagle crest mentioned in previous posts for parades.

    Yours is one of those!
