Default M35 DD Turtle camo

Hi folks. I am happy to show you a nice M35 EX DD with thick reissue paint and possibly field applied camo afterwards. The helmets original apple green colour is punctually peaking through. This helmet has been found in Wolnzach/Bavaria years ago (not from me). Its an unconventional camo but in hands a true bird of paradise.

Thank you definitely no replaced pin. One pin is a bit elevated but original to the helmet

Looks like some sort of KM coastal artilery camo job.

Looks like a great unusual camo, as I like!

Member Nutmeg posted a pic of a similar one a few years ago, he wrote:
"This one is in the collections of New York State Miltary Museum , given by the veteran who captured it in Germany."
