    Hi, I don't see any issues with it, correct liner but somewhat distorted, its a M35 by the way.

    It appears OK. Liner may have been removed at one time. Looks like the national shield was taken off according to the rule requiring its removal - not unusual to see. One thing - get the chin strap off the visor. It is beginning to "knife" through and may break off with handling. Try to preserve it if you are able. NH

    Morning! I see no issues with this M35 myself, a decent honest worn piece. Leon.

    hello friend, I bought the helmet, thanks to aid from all friends, thank you
    another doubt, could explain better about the removal of the national rule shield?
    and what it means, the LBA in the chin strap

    Great helmet, nothing wrong with this one. The national shield decal was ordered to be removed in 1940. This is why M35 helmets with both decals intact are so difficult to find.

    The LBA chinstrap is typical of early Luftwaffe helmets. It is a Luftwaffe property stamp- 'Luftwaffe Bekleidungs Amt'
