    A great looking M40 SS Doug , I really like the wear to the liner!! It really shows the sweat and grease of hard use. Nice "deep" set cammo to , a real beauty!! Leon.

    I really like the contrast between the bright green and tan color paint. The decal is striking, too. Thanks for sharing
    Don't feel bad, I know what you mean about the crappy resolution these iPads have (I'm using one).

    Also Doug, I'm sure you're not watching ice skating so you can check out the nice flexible ladies in tights. .. I'm not judging you..

    That is a very vibrant green, I suspect the supply corps must have been fresh out of subdued camo and only had glossy kermit the frog green on hand.

    You know Doug I have been thinking about this all morning and it would be a shame for you to have display this poor old beat up lid with all your other helmets on the wall wont it just be taking up space
    I would be more than happy to display it for you at my house I can promise you it will be on the top shelf well looked after dusted regularly

    Hi Mark,

    This came from a great collector of SS helmets in Japan via one Mr Hicks. It was one of the first SS camo helmets I bought and honestly still one of my favorites. As many have commented the colors are very striking and for a camo it just has that look I favor in a collectible helmet.

    I have long suspected the helmet to have come from the Normandy campaign and perhaps it served with a soldier on the steppes of Russia before that hence the tan under the green. That said it is just my imagination as I have no known provenance to this one.

    I do think the helmet sat in some water for a length of time, perhaps. My scenario for this one is under a heavy Allied barrage on D+25 an unfortunate soul was struck down when a round landed so close that the concussion split the top of the helmet hence the blood damage, and the helmet rolled into a shallow ditch where it lay under water until claimed either by a passing Allied soldier or Norman farmer.

    The helmet hasn't told me this however, it is just in my imagination. But when I hold the inside to my ear like a giant conch shell I swear I can hear the sounds of that barrage.
