    Default Found this M40 Snow Camo, need somebody to double check it for me.

    I usually avoid camo helmets unless they are offered by a reputable dealer, but the winter paint on this one looks original to me. It shows flaking, brush strokes, and age. This is where I stand right now: the liner is post war, the chinstrap is a possible fake, the interior has been cleaned so much that the original paint is worn off, the winter camo appears original, and the helmet has no visible markings. I am only interested in the shell and the winter paint, so let me know what you think.

    I do not believe this winter camo is original but the strap looks ok to me. The winter camo does not show the age I would expect of a winter camo nor does the wear appear to be natural.

    Winter camo helmets are among the biggest minefields in helmet collecting. Tread carefully!

    Thanks for your help. I see exactly where you are coming from. Lets wait and see other people's opinions before I pass this one up.

    I agree. This one does not look good to me.

    The strap is the best thing on this helmet ! No realistic top wear + all the other negatives you mention are red flags.
