I don't like it but lets see what others say
Hi ,looks like an original M35 relic that has had a replacement liner and chinstrap added. I cannot see any way the liner would be in that good of a condition compared to the steel if it were original to the helmet. Leon.

I agree with Leon!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Thanks guys. Leon, by replacement liner & chinstrap do you mean repro or genuine ones from another lid?
It all comes down to what cheap is. The liner looks to be an original I am not sure about the chinstrap I have my doubts about it. IF the price is good it may be worth it for the liner.

If the liner is as dry as parchment ( it looks that way ) it could have been a nice helmet that has spent many many decades in a damp but hot environment ( like a shed roof cavity )
A repro chinstrap for sure but sharper pix of the liner are needed for me to say yea or nay.

At $75 I think I will chance it and post better pics when I have it in hand. Thanks for all the help and advice on this, we will know for sure next week.
