    M35 reissue with dug out heer decal. It looks likely to be good but better straight on close ups of the decal are needed to be certain and close ups of the paint in natural light.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Jerry-will do concerning extra photos in natural light. Right now the sun is beating down but in a few hours I'll be able to take some photos of the helmet outside.

    Srdj, that looks like a nice helmet. It would be a shame If someone dug out the decal, but still a nice lookin lid, pending better photos.

    Ouch. Yes that is a shame about the decals. Would have been a great looking helmet had they left it be. Still not a bad looking helmet.

    Shame about the digging, but I like the rough brushed paint.

    Terrible attempt at digging those decals out, done without any thought or care, nice looking helmet somewhat spoilt, but besides that, still worth having
