    Hi there,it looks like a decent M35 with the early "shiney" Luftwaffe blue paint that has been "cleaned/stripped" for some reason.You can just see the shadow of the adler in one of the pictures!The liner also has the earlier "square" bales for the chinstrap. This one stands a chance of being good but as the decals are removed you will want to get it at a good price!! Leon.

    Thank you for the fast answer

    So the blue paint can be original? I have never seen helmets that shiny before - that was what led me to believe that it was re-painted. Good point on the removed decal - and didnīt notice that

    Hi,all branches of service were known to have "shiney" paint pre-war,that was then over painted in drab.Heres some picture's of my Luftwaffe that had it's period over paint. Leon.

    I might suggest it's a Finnish reissue postwar, tough to say with these pics.

    An example.

    The paint looks like early LW to me with the decals removed.

    I agree with Kradspam, I would say postwar Finnish paint. I dont see any evidence of decal being scrapped from the existing paint. If it were prewar or early war paint it would be a DD as well, but as I said, cant see the decals being scrapped.

    Either way i think this would be great at the right price!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
