    Default battleship grey M40 Helmet - Kriegsmarine or perhaps Coastal Artillery?

    Hello all,

    This helmet is painted grey but I think I see green under this layer. This would mean the lid started as a Heer helmet and not Kriegsmarine, correct? What would this combination suggest? Was it put into Naval service, or perhaps Coastal Artillery?

    is it potentially a postwar repaint or reissue under another government?

    Hi William, this looks like it is just the standard slate grey over paint that many helmets received at depot level. It could have belonged to the HEER or KM. All in all a nice solid helmet. Leon.
