WW2 German Luftwaffe M35 Double Decal Helmet - Refurbishment:
This genuine M35 Quist 64 helmet shell, liner band and liner pins (less one), were supplied by a customer.
The shell had been repainted post war and the owner tried to remove the post war paint, unfortunately this was not successful. However the good news was that the inside is in almost mint condition. Also the liner and chinstrap are superb and came from the helmet. After some checks an identical batch number was identified as Luftwaffe and double decal. This is backed up with the chinstrap markings 'L.B.A. & 'Franz Brehme Walsrode 1938' and it is a double brown chinstrap.
The customer wanted it restoring to a Luftwaffe helmet double decal using all the supplied original parts.
The good news is that we managed to match the inner original paint to the new outer paint. This is extremely hard to do and cannot always be done but in this case we had an excellent match.
The helmet has been treated with museum wax and polished for the finishing touch!
