M35 Heer three tones normandy camouflage bailing wire combat helmet
A stunning M35 German three-tone Normandy camouflage combat helmet with bailing wire. This helmet was found in the small village of Jort in Calvados (Normandy, France), very close to Falaise. The helmet is an « SE64 » with an unreadable lot number. The helmet' exterior features a period application of heavy electrical cable wire with wire securement along the perimeter of the helmet in three areas. Hand-applied camouflage in the classic three-tones paint is present well over 95% of the helmet's surface. Matte in feel and still contrasting colors present. Of interesting note and desirable amongst the collecting community is the paint is over the wire camouflage system and remains nicely in place. This is clearly seen in the multiple detailed photos below. Split pins remain untouched, complete and retaining their camouflage finish. The Heer decal is present under the camouflage. The helmet's interior is matching to the exterior. Untouched and complete. The leather liner is fully present and still pliable. Separated along the back with age and nicely named to the soldier along the side. Ink stamped with the size « 56 » on the leather tongue. Drawstring is present. Leather chinstrap is also complete, maker marked and stamped with the year of manufacture « 1940 ». Roster number is painted along the back skirt in white paint « 42 ». Slightly dusty and undisturbed all around. One of the nicest helmets we have seen in a while and a true choice offering. Top shelf helmet !
