    Hi All From Down Under!
    Can anyone give an Aussie some advice on the following Helmet. I have been offered it but am new to this and unsure if it is a real McCoy. Appreciate any help, Regards Geoff

    Hi Geoff, for of all welcome to the forum!

    This is a complete post war rebuild job. (i.e. a fake)

    Look at the artificial wear to the paint done with sandpaper. The liner is also new. Of course, the decals are bad.

    As a general rule, double decal M40's are very rare to find.

    Cheers, Ade.

    That's a classic

    And geoff, never be scared or worried about asking, just don't try to put us to the test

    There are a few serious collectors/dealers on this forum. It is not an idiots forum
