DAK M40 untouched condition.

I recently got this M40 helmet in an exchange of item's it was one of a collection of German Helmet's which a dealer purchased late last year I saw most of the Helmet's and they were all superb untouched like this one but of course being Tropical and painted inner skirt too which always looks great I was attracted to this one, the helmet looks super from every angle and there are signs of an army decal beneath the paint silver specs showing in some the paint scratches.
The maker is NS size 64 shell, chinstrap dated 1940.

I have one other DAK Helmet which I tried to sell recently as it's so expensive to actually own one let alone two of these but with no takers looks like I'll be keeping them both they do look good together.

Happy New Years Eddie

Just outstanding helmet to start the New Year. Really like the color and natural wear to it. Chinstrap is a bonus.

Wish i had your problem, but they do look great together.

Cheers
Tim

Re: DAK M40 untouched condition.

IMO an early DAK helmet due to the pink camo, very desirable helmet and a great addition to your collection
Thanks for showing smile
