Battle damaged M40 Luftwaffe helmet

Article about: Any other opinions if it is an M35 or M40? On one side it looks like an M35 and the other side like an M40.

    Default Battle damaged M40 Luftwaffe helmet

    Hey guys,

    Bought this battle damaged M40 helmet from a forum member, awesome guy! . It comes from 21. Feld-Division (L) positions not far from Džūkste. I think the owner was KIA as I don't see any exit holes or any dents in the backside of the helmet but we will never know..

    Nice helmet! If someone was wearing it they sure didn't live when that round hit them.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I had some doubts about it as I don't know a lot about German stuff..

    It's nice. I like the remaining green paint (it looks green to me) The damage also gives it some character . Maybe there are no exit holes or dents because the shots/shrapnel came from a downward angle..? It's cool either way, thanks for sharing your new relic!

    Thanks guys! @ Dean, the paint is green indeed and the little hole was indeed in from shrapnell in a downward angle. The biggest hole wasn't from a downward angle in my opinion but we'll never now.
