German M35 Afrikakorps (DAK) Desert Tan Helmet with Affixed Decals
New Made Item: Simply put this is the very best reproduction M1935 helmet available anywhere. It is an IMA exclusive and has been in development for over a year. It was copied exactly from an original in the IMA collection. But let us explain precisely why it is the very best:
The shell is constructed of 1.8mm thick steel, exactly the same thickness used by the Germans in WWII. This means our helmet is as heavy and as solid as an original. The shell is large (size 68) and has the correct classic M1935 rolled edge as well as proper hollow rivet ventilation holes. For added authenticity we stamped the code 1575 at nape and ET68 over ear.
The liner comprised of soft tan (cream colored) genuine leather that, just like the originals, will turn brown with age, in correct eight finger configuration with central drawstring and an M1931 aluminum liner band that is maker marked, dated, and size stamped! Liner size can accommodate head sizes 7 (56cm) up to 7 5/8 (61cm).
The all leather chinstrap has a black exterior with tan interior, comes with metal studs, correct aluminum buckle, and connects to the helmet with proper D rings.
The finish/color is painted in desert tan "sandgelb" with DAK palm tree swas decal on the right-hand side and a tri-band shield on the left-hand side.
This is it- the best reproduction WWII German M-35 Helmet available on the market today offered at very affordable price.
Note: These helmets are spray painted to order by hand, field repaint style with cardboard covering the liner. This means that there can be overspray on the liner sometimes, and that there may be drips, orange peel, or other imperfections in the paint. The decals are also applied by hand, and sometimes may have ripples or edge chipping. Due to painting and drying times these may take several business days before shipment.
