Original WWII German M35 Double Decal Camouflaged Combat Helmet Normandy Bring Back. A model 1935 double decal Army helmet. The decals were period removed, traces can be seen. It has a very unusual tri-color thick painted camouflage pattern. The paint has an amazing deep patina that can only be created naturally by authentic age. The liner is nice but show signs of use as expected. The aluminum band has a break in the back (see photo). One of the 2 chin strap loops is broken. The helmet has the maker numbers (see photos) and a name scratched into the rear (see photos) This was an indirect U.S. Veteran purchase (from the son). The family told us his dad picked it up in Normandy. This is a truly amazing untouched real combat used helmet that has never been restored or altered. Just like we like to find them. Do not miss this one! Gettysburg Museum Certified (COA) provided. Rare 100% Guaranteed to be authentic Brought home by a U.S .Veteran as a trophy of war.
