On Hold Monster M35 ET70 SS-VT / Waffen-SS Double Decal Combat Helmet

SKU: WS68

Here is an outstanding, shell size 70! combat service used Waffen-SS M35, made by Eisenhuttenwerke-Thale (ET70, heat lot #4028). The finish is a lustrous, waxy apple green feldgrau, nearly 90% intact. The decals are classic factory applied CA Pocher runic and party shields, appropriate for this lot number. They are at close to 85-90% intact and show expected age crazing and other textbook desirable characteristics. When found, this helmet was missing the proper liner, so the collector installed a size 62 later war liner (incredibly hard to find) to complete the look and feel of this giant helmet. (This fact is factored into the pricing of course, wereas an untouched example of this size in this condition would fetch closer to 17-18k easily). The chinstrap is an original period M35 style strap, with a partial marking still visible, and in good, serviceable condition. The rarity of a size 70 shell makes this a very collectible specimen all things considered! This excellently priced Original SS-VT / Waffen-SS Helmet comes with my unconditional lifetime guarantee of authenticity
