    Well, wires are mostly all fakes an I'm not also sure about the liner. But this M40 shell looks original to me and also paint is OK. Of course it is hard to tell before I have seen it:-). What other experts think - what is the reason this ND M40 is a fake?

    Yes, this is an original M40 shell and liner. But i have painted it and added the wire by my self.

    I think the Luftschutz helemts are original and don't really belong in this thread.

    This is a repainted rough textured M40 SD Luftwaffe helmet I bought many years ago on ebay, believing it to be real. Note the poor condition of the liner in relation to the fine condition of the paint job. You can also clearly see a lacquer or glue residue on the decal. The original pic shown on the auction did not clearly show this residue, a clear give away. The chinstrap is also a reproduction complete with stampings. While this may be an obvious repaint to most collector's, it could easily be a trap to a novice just starting out.
