Luftwaffe DAK M35 Helmet
This is an outstanding example of a Luftwaffe M35 helmet by Quist, size 64 shell (heat lot number difficult to see), with the distinctive dark-pink tan DAK color overpaint on top of LW feldgrau. The DAK finish remains strong throughout the helmet exterior, with obvious service wear in the desert climate, with expected patina. There is a perfectly oblong shrapnel strike to the lower right rear area of the skirt. If the Hauptmann (you can see his rank in the skirt) was wearing this at the time of the strike, it is unlikely he knew about it. COA accompanies.
