    Default Finnish M40?

    I recently bought this very interesting looking helmet from a Finnish vendor and I'm not quite what helmet this is exactly. To me it looks like a German M40 issued to the Finns. The decals have also been scraped off, possibly after the war I'm not sure.

    If anyone could help me identifying this helmet I'd appreciate it.

    I'm a new user so I'm a bit lost and I accidentally published the thread although my post wasn't ready but here are the pictures of the helmet, haha.

    Have a look at this site. The four rivet helmet is shown. Probably a German post war police helmet of sorts.

    Cheers,

    Yeah that's an option too, but as Emil said it has 4 rivets which is pretty unusual and and the placement of the rivets are very different as well compared to the M55 helmet, as far as I'm concerned.

    This is a parade lightweight helmet I found from German-Helmets.com that has the same kind of rivet placement.

    I looked further and found that the SD helmets had 4 rivets but it's highly unlikely that this would be one of those but I don't know.
