    Default Roadtrip finds ! 2 new helmets ! Help needed !

    Hi guys. 14 days ago me and my collector buddy was on a roadtrip ! My buddy got this contact with a guy we didn`t knew ! My buddy should buy some american stuff from him ! When they had made the deal, we asked if he got any german items ! He said that he had some german helmets ! And he found a box where the helmets was in ! And I took a look at them and bought them ! ( m42 and a m35 )
    My question is: I know what the m42 is ! But the m35, I would like to know what is was born as when it left the factory ? As there are 2 decals on top of each other ! Is it possible to tell from the manufacturer-lot number what it was first ? Please help if you got that lot number book from Brian Ice ! I don`t have it myself yet ! But sure will buy one some day !
    Let`s see if someone make a hit spot on , on these 2 helmets what they are ?
    The m42 is an : ckl 66 lot nr. 3173
    the m35 is an : ET 64 lot nr. 3670
    I will take some foto`s of the helmets on sunday when I get back ! And post them in 2 new post`s ! So till then ! Let`s see who got the right answer !?
    Have a nice weekend ! Thanks.
    SF
    Ps. I really hope you can help here ! And who "win" this little "competition" hitting spot on what helmet`s I got !?

    Impossible to tell from the lot number I'm afraid. Pics are the only way.

    Ned did you get into the catnip?

    Hi again. Here some pics. of the m35. Taken with flash ! hope they will do, to tell what I got here ! And hope you guys can tell what this helmet was born as ? The helmet got 2 layers of the same smooth early green ! Looks like it first was painted and decaled as (what i think) a KM dd helmet ! ( but could be wrong ?) And then painted again and decaled as a Heer ! They didn`t just put a new decal on top of the first decal ! But painted it and put a new decal on the helmet ! Normally I think they would just put a new decal on top of the first ! But here they painted it before they did that ! The liner band is an early singlebanded type ! And had got 2 owners ! Name in the back ! And a label sewn on the leather with the soldiers name ! As you can see on the pics ! Take a look and let me know what you think about this helmet ! Thanks ! SF
    The m42 I will show in a new thread. ( Roadtrip finds Helmet 2. m42 )

    Looks gold to me peeking out behind that left wing feather ...... a close-up would help rule out toning.

    Very neat helmet! KM reissued to Heer from the pics, but the toned vs KM is always a can of worms here. Either way I like it a lot!
