WW2 ORIGINAL GERMAN M35 EREL VULKANFIBER OFFICERS PARADE HELMET ULTRA RARE. DESCRIPTION: Offered to you is this extremely rare WW2 original German Wehrmacht M35 style Vulkanfiber high ranking officers parade helmet. These helmets were developed in the 1930s to be used as replacements of the heavy steel combat helmets during lengthy parades. Their design prevented neck strain and fatigue. It is painted in feldgrau color (95% intact) and bears a single German flag decal.This particular helmet is nearly unique as only few are known to exist worldwide. Later the increased demand for such helmets in Germany lead to it being factory painted and the appropriate decal applied to be used by a Wehrmacht general or high ranking officer. It bears complete markings on the inside DRGM (Deutsches Reich Registered Design) etc. There was a strike on the very top of the helmet and there are traces of that slight damage visible on the inside.
The original leather liner is in good shape, the original chinstrap has some age cracks but is with 100% original dye. The metal edge is slightly detached at the front of the helmet (see photos). Overall an exceptional helmet of great rarity.
