Hi there,looks a re-painted and re-fitted M40 shell to me.The decals are positioned well forward of the vents which on it's own would not always be a problem but with the look of the paintwork,which appears to cover indentations plus the R.LARSEN chinstrap(these are a heavily faked chinstrap maker!!)suggest HUGE RED FLAGS to me. Walk away,the feedback could be for 500 post cards and not ultra rare double decal M40's!!! Leon.
This looks like a junk M40 DD here I got a year ago with a few good helmets. Everything looks bad.
Thanks for replies on helmet.
Owner will send better pics tonight.
The stuff ive collecting on the. New zealand market is generally good....in saying that the last six items ive looked at in the last 9 months has been fakes etc.
Its sad that this hobby is getting awash with junk.
Joining this forum is the best thing one can do.
Might as well entertain the extra pics, but I doubt it will matter.
Ive only just seen this post and like everyone else I would take the details ,photos and feedback with a pinch of salt , to me this looks like a repainted Frankenstein,and one to avoid at all costs
