Extremely Early German Model 1935 Waffen SS Double Decal Helmet- According to the batch number, 2840, this is one of the earliest Waffen SS Helmets known. It features a smoothly applied, apple green finish that remains 85% intact overall. The Pocher SS decal is an absolutely fantastic example that checks in at 97% intact. The party shield, also produced by Pocher, checks in at 90% intact. The soft brown leather liner, embossed with makers name and the size 57, has only minor discoloration and wear. There is a draw string and a non-reinforced aluminum liner band that is maker marked, dated 1935 and size stamped. The side of the interior is stamped E.T. 64 indicating production by Eisenhuttenwerke of Thale in the size of 64. As mentioned, the lot number is 2840 indicating production in 1935. There is a brown leather chin strap which is good condition, but slightly shortened. A fantastic opportunity to own a very special piece of Third Reich history.
