    Default M35 Q64 Winter Camo & Snow Goggles.

    It has been a slow year for me so far; this is my first of 2013, but well worth the patience!

    This is going to take ages to write as it only arrived today, it's sat on the desk next to me and I keep catching myself gazing at it. I never thought I'd be able to find a winter camo in such good condition. Normally the white was removed or repainted in spring, and most of the snow helmets out there are in a relic state after having been lost somehow during the winter. The pedigree on this one can be traced back through two well known collections (Garry83 and ScottB), to it's origins in Scandinavia. It comes from the Raufoss / Brustad area of Norway, near to Oslo. It has been posted numerous times over the years at GHW, but I think it is the first time it has been up over here.

    Q64, lot number 555, I'm not sure but it is probably a Heer. It is factory green under the oil based white paint (rather than whitewash), with speckled light brush strokes of green over the white to simulate scrub poking through the snow. There is evidence of a wire having been installed at one stage around the centre of the helmet. The only blemish was caused by the original Norwegian owner before Scott got it, he went digging for decals on both sides. IMO this does not look as bad as it could do, and the goggles do a great job of covering up the damage. The goggles I'm not too familiar with but they are I think Gebirgsjager? Nicely marked on the aluminium frame with a velvet-like insulation against the skin. Liner is very supple and a lovely honey colour, and named to MAX MEIER with one letter on each tongue.

    I coveted this very lid a couple of years ago when it was Scott's avatar at GHW, and now it sits on my shelf which I never expected, I'm a very happy helmet geek

    Thanks to Patrick (Garry83) for letting me take this one! Enjoy!

    Great helmet. Very envious Also, I may have to pinch your idea of imposing items from my collection onto period photos. Looks really good

    Thanks guys I can't take credit for the 3 superimposed pics, I think Garry did that. I had to steal them though as they look pretty great. I was just in the right place at the right time, it was up for sale for a very short amount of time before I fell over myself to PM him. I had the message typed out even before I cleaned the boiling coffee from my lap lol.......

    When it comes to snagging a helmet like this one for the collection, it could be more important than burning your nuts off. COULD be.

    Why oh why did they try looking for the decals ? Still it is a beauty !

    You can hardly tell they tried digging for decals. The pattern of the white paint blends in the dig marks to where it just appears like the pattern. Doesn't take away from the helmet at all.

    He was careful yes, but i can tell. It could have been worse but still an outstanding lid.
