DAK M35 DD "Pinky" Helmet

Hi fellows

here is my second pinky that i got a few months ago.

It's a complete example with liner and chinstrap. Maker is Quist, size 64 and Lot Number 1880. Most of it's pinkish hue is there and it's named to a Leutnant Schremm. On top there are some writtings which i believe it was written by the GI who took this back as a souvenir.

Special thanks to Giorgio and Paolo for helping me with this purchase. Highly appreciated guys big_smile
