ex-Polizei Feuerwehr repainted beaded M40
Here is the latest local pick-up - nothing special but...
it is imo ex-Polizei beaded M40, reused post-war with modified liner (originally for 4 split pin attachment) with new chinstrap and hooks for neck apron.
The interior remains in original color, while outside looks to be poorly repainted with traces of decals and exposed to either chemicals when used or in an attempt to clean up the shell.
Also the bead "disappears" in one area of the helmet due to improper stamping, as well the went holes being poorly punched - poor helmet :-)
Any feedback is appreciated - thanks !
