This is a German M35/40 beaded helmet with an apfelgrun paint. The exterior paint shows some runs, overall bubbling, oxidation spots and some flaking. The interior has the same apfelgrun paint with scattered runs, bubbling, flaking and overall moderate oxidation. The rear skirt is marked "Q66" denoting manufacture by Quist and there is no left skirt marking. The liner is coming loose, it has a few torn edges and some dirt staining. The chinstrap shows overall crazing and some flaking. The front of the helmet has a faint "DV" in red paint and the rear a word that appears to be "Volksst." in red paint. A neat helmet that was likely used in the waning days of the war by the Volkssturm. (207879-440CG) [Craig Brown Collection] (/) SOLD FOR $143.75
