    Helmet looks like a "KIA". Serious head wound. What's left of the original decal, interesting how the black field is almost gone, the eagle remains. Helmet shows a lot of probably post war handling....very shiny. SE M40 helmets both Luft & Heer were often painted in a very heavy textured paint, more so than other producers of M40s'. This one is smooth with a shine to it. Maybe cleaned at one time ? Need a hands on to be sure

    But it is a good original.

    It is sideways. I cannot twist my neck again. I am an old man. Could you send straight up pics of the decal ?

    Okay...I photo shopped it for clarity & added a frame to it. (Got nothing else to do, my wife went to the gym, where I should be too)

    There is plenty of the black field intact. Your first pic of the decal, due to poor lighting made it look heavily worn. I could not see the black field. Really odd. But it is not missing (decal). It's all there

    Leave the paint alone. The shine could be from heavy wartime wear, or post war handling. Nothing you can do but handle it as least as possible. The more handling, the shinier it will get. Just leave it as is. "It is what it is " An original ET decal

    Possibly the helmet has been waxed or oiled giving it the shiny appearance?
    If that were the case though you may do damage by trying to clean it. Best left as is.

    Really odd. I photo shop your first pic the best I could for detail & clarity....still can't see the black field. Especially the sides next to the eagles head. Must have been the lighting. Just a faint outline bottom of the decal
