    It looks like a Q M35 DD with the Tricolor painted over. The liner looks messed with- steel bails, aluminum band, no leather stitching or liner pins. So basically a shell.

    Hard to tell how deep that surface rust is and if the split pins are original. Decal pictures would also help.

    FWIW - I think there are people who would pay that asking price, but I would offer less.

    Hi, it looks original enough, an ex double decal Luftwaffe M35, although in a very poor state. I personally would pass on this one. Leon.

    I love reissues, but this one is almost too messed with. Throw 200 at them.

    I agree with the fellas, basically it is a salty shell, with a WTF happened liner.
    $200 would be more like it, as Todd suggests.
