M35 Quist Luftwaffe Double Decal Helmet Vet Bringback
« on: January 14, 2019, 08:52:39 AM »
This helmet came from a 3 war veteran's estate sale. He saw service at the end of WW2 in Germany and he served in Korea and Vietnam. He retired as a Sergeant Major and had some interesting items at his home. I was able to purchase almost 90% of his uniforms and other items but the family wanted to keep several items. This helmet is one of 2 that I picked up. This is in near mint condition with very little wear to the paint and decals..

I will post pictures of the other helmet in another thread after I take more pictures

 Now that is a beauty Smitty! As they say top shelf material there. Awesome that you were able to get the SGMs story as well.  Scott
Always looking for 32nd Division items and 13th Armored Division items. Please keep me in mind if you have any.
