    Exclamation Relic White Winter Camo M40

    I am 14 years old, and thus cannot afford a "non-relic helmet" for the moment, and am considering buying this helmet below: (this helmet will cost $40 USD)

    I dont really collect helmets, I am more into soldbuchs, but I am thinking about branching out.

    So, my question is "is this white winter camouflage authentic." I understand that people frequently re-paint, or make fake versions of these because the white camo is more valuable.

    Thanks,
    Swayne

    Thanks for the feedback,

    Do you think that $40 is a fair price, that is what the seller is selling it for,

    I'd pay 40, you got some white wash on there, remains of the liner band and bags of history and an interesting relic.....sounds about right to me.....snap it up

    It doesn't look fake to me, seems to have the right kind of patina all over, and looks like the remains of a decal under the paint......don't try to remove it though, leave it as is

    Sorry, posted before I knew that you knew there was a decal (Last post by you)

    I do want to buy it.

    Also, there is the remains of a decal on the helmet (pictured below)

    Thanks,

    I don't reckon you can go wrong, I'd have it in my collection. I have one relic M35, just the shell, rusty as, no liner band and I paid 35 for it

    How many soldbuchs do you have????

    Sorry have to ask, I always ask soldbuchs collectors......have you got or seen one with the last name of Plontasch???

    A stab in the dark but I had two relis in th German Army....

    Yeah I agree completely, got good decal shape on the shell and the white wash with some internal. Cant go wrong for $40. I would very easily add it to my collection.
