    gday phill, there is no german helmet maker SF it could be SE or EF. It is probably best to post a photo.........it makes a difference knowing the model, eg m35, m40, m42.
    SE batch numbers started again with the m40 model so there could be an m35 and m40 helmet with that number

    Cheers Mate, By looking at the pics I'd say it's an M35 and obviously been spray painted at sometime, but i cant help wondering whats underneath.

    Both SE and EF M35 Shells with that lot number range would put it as being a Heer, so defiantly not SS. You might get lucky under the paint and you might not, depends what your willing to spend on it, and how easy it is to strip the paint
