This helmet appears to be a M35 re-issue. As you can see in the pictures it is a barn find that has been in a collection for about 35 years. The exterior has a sand finshed tan paint, and then had chicken wire added that was welded to the crown. When it was found there is actually bird crap on the helmet which the original owner choose never to remove. The interior has alot of grass and dirt around the liner which has some damage from heat and poor storage. The interior shows remnants of the original paint and it is freckled and has rust. You would have to see this helmet in person to truley appreciate a real barn find.
