This is a pretty rare helmet shell. This SE64 marked M35 has an early three digit lot number that puts the production in 1935. This helmet shell might very well have been part of the order that went to China to equip the Nationalist army. If the helmet stayed in German however it certainly could have seen service in Czechoslovakia and Poland. The helmet shell is in excellent shape, free from pitting and other issues. For the price listed here, the helmet can be painted to your specification and comes with the correct liner and chinstrap.
