1939-45 ARMY M35 DOUBLE DECAL HELMET. Early army parade helmet, which more than likely saw combat use given its o/a condition. Apple-green painted finish with the usual dome wear and chipping. The eagle decal has taken on a nice hue, is near 90% condition with some light damage to the black surrounding area and a light scuff to the eagle's wing. This has exposed the silver under the gold patina. The tri- colour decal shows some chips and nicks, but still rates at approx 80%. Inner retains much of the apple-green finish with some light surface rust, mostly to the dome. Shell is stamped for maker and size "ET62" to the left hand underside of the falre. Batch number of "4460" to the rear flare. Leather liner shows heavy sweat staining. One of the leather tongues has broken off and there is some clear evidence of o/a wear. Original chinstrap, which is now quite dry and could do with some leather conditioner. A nice solid example of a double decal M35 helmet at a very reasonable price. Grade II- (P)
