    Doug i'm a great lover of whitewashed camos myself and have owned a few mostly Heer and Luftwaffe but this is one of the most superb examples i have seen and to have the bonus of being able to research the helmet a rare thing itself in a combat helmet makes it almost unique.

    Many thanks for posting a helmet i'm sure we would all aspire to own,

    best regards

    Doug-
    What a magnificent piece! In my many years collecting, I have never had the opportunity to handle such a gem. I have noticed that many camoflage helmets have the owner's name written in the helmet skirt in white paint. I feel this was done when a unit had their helmets painted enmasse. Those helmets without a name may likely have had field applied paint. Your thoughts on this?

    Bob, that is as good as explanation as any. A fellow collector who goes by Narvik on the other fora has an exact twin KM M40 camo to one I own, and the handwriting in the skirt is identical and the same implement was used. I have also seen names penciled into liners and skirts, and other colors of paint used like red and green as well. Thanks for the compliments Bob et al.

    Like I said, Doug, my dream helmet is a single decal SS M42 with a nice whitewash and shiny EF decal.

    Maybe one day I will save your life or something and give me that one favor people give when their lives are saved. Then maybe I can have in on my shelf one day? haha

    I have one like this but I don't think it is SS.
