Luftwaffe m35 DD Helmet for Nachrichten 2\'nd Kom-14th Rgt

Luftwaffe m35 DD Helmet for Nachrichten 2'nd Kompany - 14th Rgt 

 

The sheet steel construction helmet retains about 90% of its original smooth, Luftwaffe blue/grey paint. The left side of the helmet has a first pattern, "droop-tailed" circa 1934-1937, Luftwaffe eagle which is retained about 60%. The right side of the helmet has a national tri-color shield decal which is retained about 75%.

 

All three liner retaining rivets and both inset ventilation bushings are all intact. The interior of the helmet has a light tan leather liner. All the liner fingers and the original tie string are complete. The reverse, interior, neck guard apron is serial number stamped, "408" and the interior left side has the stamped manufacturer’s code and size, "Q62". The helmet comes complete with a blackened leather chinstrap the chinstrap and size adjustment buckle looks period. The buckle has been painted with field/grey paint. Period or not, unsure about that. The ends of the chinstrap leather has a screw attachment insted of the ordinary set up with the same field/grey paint. Same with these, unsure if period or not. Still if wanted to, easy to replace the chinstrap with a perfectly matching one. The lining has a couple of interesting markings, see Pictures. The most interesting marking is for: "Luftwaffe Signals Replacement Battalion, 2nd Kompanie-14th Regiment".

 

The helmet shows clear signs of use, both inside and out. We arate the condition as "good used condition".

 

Hard to find any unit marked Luftwaffe helmet, especially a 1'st type one!!
