German M35 Sepp Dietrich Helmet with Fat Runes
This Sepp Dietrich helmet is reproduction, there are no genuine parts included.
This helmet has been made up from some of the best suppliers in Europe. There are a few parts that are not 100% historically correct but it is probably the best reproduction available.
The helmet shell is a Model 1935 ET maker with a faint '71' size marker(!) & batch number. The liner is suitable aged as is the chinstrap and the 'SS' decals are our museum quality 'fat runes'.
We have made this helmet to look lightly used an then stored for 70+ years. Sepp Dietrich's family still own much of his uniform and equipment and we have based this helmet on one in storage for a long time.
Notice the crazing on the Swastika decal - a result of age and the lacquer reacting to the decal - superb!
If original and if it ever came on the market would probably sell for £40,000+ GBP!
The shell show light wear but many areas are starting to rust and are worn through the paintwork.
