This is an original German M-35 helmet. It was originally issued double decal then reissued with field paint over the entire helmet and a new army decal applied. Much of the field paint has chipped away exposing the apple green paint underneath.
The decal: Apparently a large brush was used to apply the lacquer and it was brushed in a larger area then the decal. This would not have had the same appearance then, it would have been clear then. Another note on the decal,there was a run in the paint where the decal is applied making a high spot that got more wear then normal.
The tri-color decal shows through nicely. No attempt has been made to pick it out. Liner is original to the helmet and has not been removed. It is 38/39 vintage. Chinstrap is original to the helmet but is broken. Guaranteed 100% original.
