WW2 WH M35 'SD' Decal Helmet, Stalingrad
This is a very rare winter camoflaged M35 single decal WH helmet complete with original liner and chinstrap. This helmet was bunker found just after the war around Stalingrad and remained in a private collection in Russia for many years. It was passed to me by a Ukrainian collector friend several years ago and has been in my collection ever since. The outline of the decal can be seen under the whitewash which has been stained by the helmet lying in mud. There are a couple of small cracks to the steel shell due to the extreme temperature changes but nothing serious. The helmet is in very good shape considering where it has been.
