    Mhm.
    The colour of the paint is VERY green - an M40 should have a different, darker feldgrau. If the colour isn't correct (it may of course have been repainted after 1940 and before 1945!), there's a problem with the decals. They just don't seem to look right. Hard to say more, the photos aren't good enough. The liner looks alright on first sight, but it also looks aged as if smeared with shoe shine.
    What do you know of its provenience?

    Yours,

    Olaf

    Hi, I would say artificially aged leather, and also the chinstrap looks new. So, there is a chance that also the rest is not original.

    I am sorry but this helmet is a complete post war put together fake. The only original thing is the steel shell.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Always be suspicious of these Mint to good to be true helmets..most of the times they are fake.
