British leather jerkin
British leather jerkin ww2. Leftover from the Scotsguards who fought hard against German Gebirgstruppe in Northern Norway, May 1940. This is a nice piece of history that most probably saw combat. It is well worn and has a few minor tears and one of the buttons is broken in half. Small size. No stamps or markings.
M35 German Helmet.ww2
German M35 helmet,ex DD with a handpainted decal. I do not know when it was applied. Could be wartime or post war by the veteran, or someone had fun later painting it on. There is no way for me to know, and I am selling it as that. Not going to try claim it is "the real deal" it is most probably painted post war I believe. But still, it is a kool display helmet with a nice original green paint. I bought this helmet in the mid ninties and payed way too much for it as I knew nothing about these items back then. The story I was told was that it had come out of Finland and a veteran had painted the decal. Again, I am not sure if that is the truth even how much I would like to imagine it to be.
There is no clips or chinstrap but only the leftovers of the liner with it.
The shell is stamped " D29" in the neck and "NS 62" by the ear.
