Helmet, M35, Two-tone Camouflage, Holed
Superb genuine WWII German M35 helmet, in very good condition. This helmet has never been taken apart; the leather liner and its cord are still present yet the original chinstrap is missing. The shell features number 05 and hallmark N64, which corresponds to manufacturer Vereinigte Deutsche Nickelwerke in Schwerte, North Rhine-Westphalia.
This helmet features an two-tone sprayed camouflage -- sand and red ochre. Some unidentified projectile has pierced the rear of the shell, also damaging the inner liner. Found in the vicinity of Troyes (Eastern France).
