SOLD (a.l.)Fine, Rare Afrika Korps M35 Heer Helmet

SKU: TM131

This fine piece is an SE68, featuring the iconic DAK pinkish – tan desert finish atop the factory SE feldgrau finish. The Heer adler is left exposed; the national shield is covered by the camo. The liner band shows a repair / repositioning of the chinstrap bales. This illustrates the problem Baer describes about the weakness of the single ply liner bands, which were eventually replaced by double ply in 1938. An historic and rare helmet, of the premier DAK force. COA on request.
