    Default Is this an M40 (Luftwaffe) and what is it worth

    Hi All,

    I have bought this one in a collection, and am told that it is 100% authentic...

    My question is if it is a M40 ?

    I am going to sell it but have no idea what price i could ask for a helmet in this condition (which i think is very nice!!).

    Yes, m40Looks ok to me. See the rust showing at the left wing? That's a good sign. Liner looks to be in great condition. As well. Also, I can't tell but the paint looks almost black. That's typical of flak crew. It's a big size too! As for price, we arent really here to give prices, but maybe someone will give you one.

    Hi Dean,

    Thank you very much.. i am not a WWII collector and do not know what to ask for this helmet.. that is why i tried to get an estimated value :-) .. but perhaps i should put it on auction then.

    Kind regards
    Morten

    Well, you would do better selling on a places like this because auctions take a lot of money from you. I've seen these go anywhere from $700 and up

    I love the way Luftwaffe SE helmets patinate. You could tell the maker without even looking at the stamp.

    I would agree with helmetone the liner and chin strap are excellent, and the decal is not bad either, there is only some miner damage to the paint on the shell a nice helmet

    Yes, the one side is damaged but the rest is all there. At least the good side has the decal!
