Hi all, will get some better pics soon but very pleased to bring this into the collection - German M35 reissued post-WWII to the Norwegian Air Force.

Hi Dave - original and possibly undyed! Either that or the dye has faded over the decades. I will get more pictures next week.

From what I understand that dye is not all that easy to get rid of, so it looks to me as if its the original leather, you can see the markings

I agree with @Davejb, doesnt appear to have any traces of the red die, so most likely original leather. I've seen a view like this , but not many. I have one that still has the WW2 German strap.

Excellent example @IIAND! I have an M40 with a rough exterior, but a big size. ET66

I have always wondered about the dyeing of the liners? makes no sense, I have thought perhaps they changed colour due to a disinfecting process perhaps? That would explain why not all are done if say a liner was new and in unused condition? Always thought it a bit odd? Nice helmet...

Thanks all - having looked at some other examples of original German liners over the weekend, I do believe this to be wartime original and un-dyed. A nice bonus!
