    Question Of these two: Which would you choose?

    Hi. I'm about to buy one of those helmets. But i'm not sure which one. What would you choose?

    Thank you in advance!

    The M35: It has the tri-color decal taken away. The chinstrap is in poor condition and shortened.

    The SD M42: No chinstrap and one of the liner fingers is torn off.

    2nd has cleaner shell, better decal, and is wartime issue.
    You can find a nice original chinstrap.

    The M42 would have more "eye appeal" to me...if I still collected in this area.

    I know the site where these are listed. I would take the M35 - better liner, w/chin strap, and it is $100 cheaper than the M42. The decal isn't as nice, and there are chips in the paint, but it is an honest, former dd m35 with original smooth apple green paint. It is a really nice and affordable example. Just my opinion for what it's worth. Jim G.

    Both decals are in my opinion fine. The vendor is a reputable seller and from what I have seen on his site, his helmets are all "good." He gives a decent description of the pieces, and seems to point out the problems, if any, with the pieces listed for sale. I haven't yet purchased anything from him, but wouldn't hesitate to do so. I still like the M35, but what the hell, buy them both. I am about to buy a no decal para, and my wife is going to kill me too! Cheers, Jim G.
