German M40 helmet

Article about: Very bad reproduction. Looks like the junk coming out of China for sale on eBay. Even if you are blind, just holding this in your hand, you can tell it is a fake.

    Default German M40 helmet

    Hi, found this one for sale for 190euros, its too much, considering it has post war paint, fake decals( really bad ones ) but the helmet and liner look ok.
    It has L 16 inside.
    Opinions please.
    Thanks.
    Cheers.
    Nuno

    Hi Nuno, it is actually an M35 pattern. The liner is bad too.

    Save you money, this is just over priced junk.

    Cheers, Ade.

    the rolled edge of that helmet doesnt look right to me.....might just be the photo but it looks crudely and unevenly folded over
    wait for more responces though

    Personally i think the whole thing is a replica, the inner rolled edge looks uneven, and looks exactly like the type they sell at soldier of fortune

    Lee is correct. Sorry, I should have been clearer in my post. It is not an original shell.

    Cheers, Ade.
