M35 I got on Ebay

Article about: I am a little suspect if this is an original helmet. I could not see any stamps in the pics that were posted on the listing and the lettering on the liner looks too new for that aged liner.

ID:	400663I am a little suspect if this is an original helmet. I could not see any stamps in the pics that were posted on the listing and the lettering on the liner looks too new for that aged liner. I got it for what I feel was a good price ($150.00)even for a repo. I can live with it not being original as most originals are out of my price range. Your thought are welcomed. I will post pics when I have the helmet in hand. Thanks, Jon

    Hi Jon,

    Sorry to say I think this one is a top to bottom repro, shell , liner paint and decals.

    Cheers

    100% bad as the guys say. To be honest I think $150 is a bit steep for a complete repro.

    I had second thoughts before bidding on it, but the only consolation I have is that I have seen other repo's (see one of my earlier post) go for more on the evilbay site. Oh well, live and learn. Thanks again, Jon

    I have to agree my friend, over priced for a very unconvincing M35, but we learn from our mistakes, in future please post any prospective buy on here first so you can get opinions and help to save you money

    Being that i am new to collecting helmets, could you be more specific about which airvents you are talking about? Are they on the liner of shell? One more question, the chin strap is stamped, which is probably a repo also, with 'R Larsen 1939 'on it. 100% repo?

    The Larson 1939 stamped chinstrap is a well-known fake. The airvents are the 2 holes on the sides of the shell above the decals...

    They are the "vent" holes above the decals, the M35 had a two piece vent, one pushed into the helmet from the outside ,the other ,a washer type piece secured it from the inside, it is very doubtful that as this helmet is a repro that the chinstrap is completely genuine as to be honest a chinstrap would be worth more than the whole helmet
