M35 Single Decal Helmet (Stahlhelm M35)

The M16 and M18 helmets remained in usage through-out the Weimar Reichswehr era and on into the early years of the Third Reich until the development of the smaller, lighter M35 style helmet in June 1935. In an effort to reduced construction time and labor costs minor modifications were introduced in March 1940 resulting in the M40 helmet. Further construction modifications were undertaken in August 1942 resulting in the M42 helmet.

The stamped, sheet steel construction helmet retains most of its factory applied field-grey paint.

The left side of the helmet has an Wehrmacht eagle shield decal featuring a eagle with down-swept wings, clutching a canted swastika in it’s talons on a black, shield, shaped base. The decal is retained about 100%.

All three liner retaining rivets are all intact.

The interior of the helmet has a M31, tan, leather liner with all eight of its original fingers and the original worn tie string intact.

Liner is in good condition. Liner is size marked

The interior reverse neck guard apron has a serial/lot number stamp that appears to be, "

Original chinstrap remains with embossing:
RB Nr. 0/0865/0012

Nice helmet!
