    I have seen this lid for sale and was not keen on it. Do you know the shell maker? Regardless, I did not like the design of the decal, (the rest of the helmet looked ok) the runes look ET but the outline of the shield looks more like a Pocher, and the runes sit to high within the shield - abit of a hybrid in my opinion.

    The decal is not original. I would keep looking. Jim G.

    Just another ruined M40 !! That's a pun I just realized !! Ruined or Runed,in this case....both.

    By the way...very smart choice showing it here first before buying it.

    Agreed, it certainly appears to be a decal put on some years ago, it may have decent looking wear patterns, but those runes are way to high in the shield placement and one of them looks almost double the size of the other. Certainly not one I would pursue. Leon.

    They have them for sale like this one because they think it is real, or are trying to find someone who did not do research. Personally I think a lot of the dealers at major US shows who have fake SS helmets on their table for sale think their fakes are original. Internet dealers, well because of their lack of knowledge, they got stuck with the fakes, now they have to move them along & get rid of them.

    Some when told their SS helmets are fakes, get quite insulted & snap back..."Well who are you" ? etc.etc. So as of late...at a show, pick it up, look at it & put it down & don't say anything

    Words of wisdom .... its better that way ..because the one who does not argue is the one with the most knowledge...and to say .... " Thats who he is "

    I pick an item up..I look at it with a Poker face and put it back down saying Thankyou for letting me see it.
