M40 SD Heer Helmet

Hi guys, here is a M40 this time.

It has a dark field green paint, named liner original to the helmet but in bad condition. The decal is still in good shape.

Maker is Quist, size 64, lot no. DN273 (i think).

I believe those marks (lines across the shell) were caused by a flat bendable metallic piece which was used for camo purposes. Not 100% sure but it's possible.

Prost,
Chris

Believe me.that would be the best.as experience and finding an original.when you can post your helmet to see it.

Re: M40 SD Heer Helmet

Hi guys. I see you had a nice time online while i was sleeping hmm lol

Nicos i don't remember how much i paid for it. For some reason it's the only helmet that i had forgotten to list in my inventory.

I found these photos of the seller from my thread in the GHW forum, downloaded them in the pc and uploaded them here. Maybe it was 400 or 500 euros.
