WWII German Luftwaffe Model 1935 Double Decal Helmet-This example retains 75% of its smoothly applied, blue grey finish. The Luftwaffe decal remains 80% intact, with the tri color shield checking in at 85%. The soft, supple brown leather liner has minor discoloration only. There is extremely minor scuffing along the lower edge. It is size stamped 53 and has a drawstring. There is a reinforced aluminum liner band that is maker marked, dated 1939 and size stamped 60/53. The side of the interior is stamped SE 60 indicating that this was produced by Sachsische Emailler in the (smallest production) size of 60. The rear skirt is stamped with the lot number 4929 indicating production sometime in 1939. A very good example overall!
