    I believe this an original shell that has been heavily "Nazified" post war. The decals are definitely not original, and they are also set up in a Wehrmacht DD configuration. By looking at the liner I would guess someone repurposed this as a motorcycle helmet at some point.

    Sorry but I do not think this is a Finnish SS Volunteer helmet. On the bright side it looks like decent M40 shell.

    Yup, as already stated, post war paint job and liner padding. The shell looks to be a good M40, though not in the best condition with quite some oxidation visible on the inside.
    On the bright side, there's an original reinforced aluminium liner band in there, which is nice.
    But definitely not the alleged Finnish SS helmet, not by a long shot.

    Hi, as said, not SS, just an original shell that has been post war played around with. Leon.

    Definitely a prime candidate for a sympathetic restoration back to its original configuration.
