I have what appears to be a German m35 helmet but I don’t know a lot about them. I know there are a ton of replicas out there , can any experts chime in and help me out and tell me if it’s legit or not.

Nice helmet. It appears to be a double decal (Wehrmacht and National decals) M35 Size 64 manufactured by F.W. Quist (Q64). Is the vent riveted or molded into the helmet? That was difference between the M35 and M40. The liner appears original with draw string and there might be a faint stamp in the top of the helmet under the liner but it’s hard to tell from the pictures.

It looks like it’s riveted to the helmet . I’ll look under the liner for a stamp but I don’t think I saw one
