M35 ET68 LUFTWAFFE AUTUMN CAMO HELMET (Affordable Reproduction)

Well here's a helmet I never thought I would have up on the site preferring instead to only restore original WW2 German shells but here it is a little something for those newer collectors out there on a budget. A reproduction M35 ET68 helmet shell and liner that I professionally restored to try and create an interesting late war Luftwaffe Normandy camo pattern reminiscent of those found in captured helmet piles in Northern France.

The camo paint was matched from known originals out of my own personal collection and so this is the exact color that was used by the Wehrmacht pre-45. The Luftwaffe eagle is the textbook ET version and was actually created here in house in my workshop based on high resolution scans I had done on some of my original M40 Luftwaffe single decal helmets and so the decal design itself is 100% spot on.

The helmet is side stamped ET68 and rear lot stamped 2109 with nicely marked 61 stamped on one of the leather liner fingers. The liner was further pressed down via steam and pressure to create this authentic bowl shaped appearance simulating real war time use and wear. A genuine example would run well into the thousands. A real nice shelf Queen and very affordable for entry level collectors.

(Every original German helmet produced from 1935 to 45 had two factory stampings punched into the side and rear or both in the rear.  The alpha numeric number refers to the factory location and the inside metric circumference in centimeters.  The rear lot number refers to the production run and was used as a quality control measure. The font styles used at each factory were slightly different but highly consistent throughout the war and so fakes or reproductions will either not have these numbers at all or they will use the wrong font style or letter spacing and so are easily identified as post war made.)
