    Nice KM. The decal was removed during the war, I am sure, due to regulations. That is why DD KM's are ultra rare.

    i'd be estatic to have this one. Any M35 KM is a great helmet. If you are upset about the missing tri-color, I will be more than happy to relieve you of having to look at it

    Hi there,

    From the pics provided I also think it is a good KM lid! Nice one!

    Regulations in short:

    Due to order the tricolor had to be removed from the helmets by 1940.
    By 1943 the Heer, KM and Luftwaffen eagle had to be removed as well.

    With the war making progress the Germans figured that camouflaging their helmets was very important. Increasing enemy sniper fire and being superior in the field were two of the main reasons.
