    Default Says it's German WW2 helmet

    This item is described as a German WW2 helmet and I have an opportunity to purchase it. From my scant knowledge of German helmets, this looks like an M35, but seems to have two holes in the front for some kind or ornament and it has no liner or visible maker's mark. Can I assume it is Spanish or something other than German?

    Have you looked at the side skirt where your right ear would be, it may be covered in rust, either way its something that could be a spanish helmet but that terrible green paint has to come off but i dont know if its worth all the trouble

    It is not Spanish as these have a welded bracket. It is Hungarian or Latvian
    or some other European country. The holes are for fixing a badge
    to the front and as a repainted relic, it is not worth much.
    Regards,

    Yes walkwolfs quite right, thanks for the correction, must have had a brainstorm as i had a spanish one ages ago with the bracket, but if there is a makers mark then someone has drilled holes into it

    Might be fun to restore if it is cheap enough, the shell looks to be in really good condition.

    Thanks fellows! Would $80 be considered a reasonable price?

    If it were offered to me I would be prepared to pay $50, don't forget that if you intend a restoration for reenactment or display purposes that you'll need paint, decals, liner, band, rivets, chinstrap and drawstring. A repo liner can be $30 so if you can bargain down to $50 it'll be like getting a free liner! Good luck!
