Thank you, I could well be wrong (usually am!) but I seem to recall reading that a very small number of early Luftwaffe M40s
I like it as a DD.
The helmet, liner, chinstrap, and rivets were £100, plus paint and decals.

Either way the helmet looks great. Good job
What a great job you did!!!! I love restoring helmets myself, to some it might be a waste of money and time and to some it might be a destruction of a perfectly fine helmet. I restored my M42 which was in bad shape, the end result is worth every penny, every minute, and every single negative comment made by others.
So cheers to you, it is a great looking helmet; preserved for future generations of collectors.
