M35 ET64 WAFFEN-SS DD COMPLETE HELMET WITH LINER & CHINSTRAP

This M-35 is a factory issue Waffen-SS ET64 with a C.A. Pocher applied decal. The rear lot number is 3616, suggesting 1938 production year with the outer liner band being the earlier aluminum non-reinforced version and dated 1937.   The liner and all pins, chinstrap, etc are completely untouched and in near mint condition with the chinstrap bearing the maker’s mark and dated 1938 Munchen.  The front left hand side of the inside liner does show some dark staining which may actually be the remnants of dried blood however this is highly speculative on my part.  The decals show your typical glue and lacquer factory application, and the paint has a light apple green hue with a nice dull patina.  Overall I doubt I’ll ever run into a finer example so this one is staying with me for now as part of my personal collection.
