    WEEK 6:  M1935 64cm Quist Pattern Double Decal Police Helmet

This helmet was acquired in 2009 from a member of a WWII veteran's family.  The helmet was given to the family member by the veteran who surprisingly served in the U.S. Marine Corps, not the army.  This is not surprising in that over the years I have acquired several helmets from Marine Corps veterans that were not captured in the Pacific, but rather traded back in the States by exchanging Japanese items for Nazi items.  This helmet is a fine example of a 1938 produced M35 pattern helmet manufactured by the Quist firm.  The helmet bears an interesting non-regulation "D" ring which the police serviceman added to the helmet to secure it to his belt when not being worn.  The decals are the early pattern type with the eagle decal bearing no silver border.  The helmet is painted what many collectors refer to as "pea green".
