    Hi, it all appears ok to me, a nice m35 that had the National shield removed per 1940 regulations. The only concern I may have is that all of the liner pins appear loose, so the liner may have been out at some point. Take a look inside and see if the pins have a "wobble/ripple" look to them. If they do, then there's your answer. Leon.

    I have a clamp that I can use with wood slats to tighten them up. Would you advise? The pins seem loose but not bent in a ripple effect.

    From a novice, why were the National shields removed, what regulations?

    Hi William, I think the order specified that it was simply for the reasons of "camouflage".
    I would not bother to play around with the pins if this were my helmet. Leon.

    It always gives you a good feeling to find something that you really like.

    I would leave the pins as is. They often loosened due to use, and yours most certainly saw some use. It is a really nice example, real and untouched.

    very nice! Love the color of these early Luft helmets!

    As said. Leave it untouched. Don't mess with the pins.
