German WWII M35 Zimmerit Camo Helmet- Just acquired out of the woodwork with a spectacular story involving it being found in a field in May of 2019. We shall be happy to provide the new owner with all of the succulent details. This incredible piece retains better than 95% of the extremely thick textured Zimmerit finish used on German tanks to prevent explosives from sticking to the sides. The only place the Zimmerit finish is missing is on the rivets, and that is understandable. The size 59 liner retains the original drawstring. There is moderate discoloration but there are no damages or repairs to the liner. The interior of the shell still has dirt remnants and I have not attempted to clean that. This has a reinforced aluminum liner band. The side of the interior of the shell is marked “NS66” and the batch number in the skirt appears to be “E. 154.” The original owner’s name and rank is nicely stenciled in the skirt. It reads “Gefr Schröder.” The helmet is complete with its original, but very crusty, chinstrap. I have placed a piece of electrical tape over one portion to prevent it from breaking. Absolutely unique opportunity to own a helmet of this type.
