This is an original WW-2 German M-35 Kriegsmarine helmet. helmet is an M35 with the inserted vents. Liner is original and has never been removed. Band is aluminum, chinstrap rings are bent aluminum rather then the earlier cast aluminum or later bent steel. So no doubt from the period of transition from M-35 to M-40 style liner. Paint is original factory, it is the M-40 type paint on the M35 shell due t othe transion time period. The decal is mostly gone, since it was done to M40 standard there was not a second decal on the other side. Above the vent on the decal side there is a spot of missing paint from improper handling in recent times, otherwise undisturbed from it's original state. Shell is marked SE62 and 4948.
