Straight out of the woodwork – UNTOUCHED – M35 blue colored Luftwaffe helmet with double decals. The Luftwaffe eagle is the desirable first pattern model often referred to as the ‘Droop Tail’ or ‘Snake Leg’ variant, typical for this manufacturer. Both decals are present and show modest wear. The helmet is complete with its early single band aluminum liner (dated 1937), that is broken on one side. This is a typical type of damage, and therefor the reinforced aluminum liners were introduced a year later. The liner is complete with a full lenght draw string and chocolate brown LBA marked Luftwaffe chin strap, dated 1937. Only this strap is worth a small fortune today! Interesting was of course what was under the liner; a unit mark (not able to tell what it says) and a name tag of ‘Wiederhut W.’. There is also news paper twisted in the shell, to absorbe sweat and have a more comfortable wear, it is dated 1939! The helmet is maker marked and size marked on the side: Q66 and has the lot number 5170 in the rear. Beautiful and rare untouched M35 LW helmet!
