M40 SD Helmet. SS?

Article about: The location of the past decal is in wrong position to be an authentic third reich decal. It's a post applied decal what ever the case.

    I don't think it's a Norwegian decal from the shape of it.

    Below is a snippet from the database at GHW. I think this one was a ND M40, Quist produced the '40 right until the Russians were on the steps of the Reichstag. The remnants of the decal that are there are post war I believe.

    I highly doubt there was ever a decal there. Theres no period matching patina that indicates a decal was ever applied and removed. IMO, its possible a fake decal was removed or the they tried to make it look like an original SS decal was removed. Heres an example of a period removed SS decal, probably by the soldier due to the new regulations or the GI who captured it.

    This is the patina you want to see.

    Lot & size number was a good clue, second, the matching patina, & third, the twin to this lid was located at another forum. It was also inspected by the two top SS guns in this game. It was reviewed by both DougB & Kelly Hicks.

    OK, wait a second there. I just noticed this is a rear stamped "Q". Its definitely not an SS! There are no known examples of such (at least to my knowledge), but let Doug confirm this.
