    The helmet is indeed a fake. The decals are incorrect in diamentions. You will know the chinstrap is fake too of course.

    This is an M40. Black painted SS helmets, other than WW1 styles, tend to be M35 only. Never seen an M40 that I can recall?

    Cheers, Ade.

    i would also add that the chinstrap is the wrong type and the paint on the underside of the helmet seems in excellent shape when compared to the weathering of the exterior,,,BOGUS

    The bad late war helmet, cannot be double decal, even a most part of them was without decals at all. The black helmets was discontinued in 1940 year
