    Put some distance between you and this one. The decals are poor fakes, especially the bird. Not to mention that liner, which might be of Czech post war origin but certainly not wartime German. Also Heer M40's with two decals are essentially non existent. Honestly, get that book I mentioned by Ken Niewiarowicz. He has them for sale for $75 on his site germanhelmetsinc.com. That $75 will save you thousands if you are going to seriously collect into the future.

    It might be a nice idea to become a full member here too if you are going to be around a lot. If for no other reason than to get rid of the adverts. They really annoy me every time my membership runs out. It helps to support the running costs of the forum which are not inconsiderable.

    Decals are certainly bad. Everything is bad other than the shell. Cheers, Sean.

    Its an M40 with double decals which are VERY rare they are also obviously bad,. Non German liner, Non German liner pins, Smooth paint finish.. M40's were textured feldgrau and not a bit of genuine looking wear on the whole helmet. Cheers, Sean.

    I would not bother talking to him about it. It's worth the value of the stripped shell which is about $100 to a re-enactor. With respect you are shopping in the wrong places.
