A fine early M35 Double Decal police Helmet.
The helmet is in very good condition with nearly all the early pre-war original apple green issue paint remaining. There is some minor period tarnishing and scuffing to the paint from period usage.
The helmet is a large size early example manufactured by Vereinigte Deutsche Nickelwerke, with the stamping NS66 in the inner skirt and batch number D183. The early re-enforced aluminium liner is slight dry but in very good overall condition. There is still one side of a chinstrap attached to one of the bales, but the rest of the chinstrap has broken and is missing.
The police decal, on the left hand side in very good condition with some small chips and scratches, whilst the national swastika decal on the right of the helmet is all complete, but with some fading.
The helmet has a label to the inside, with the owners name and rank, which looks to be ‘pol. Hauptwachtmeister Kammerlrath’, so should be re-searchable. Underneath the label is a clear dome stamp.
A fine police combat helmet.
