German M40 Helmet

Article about: I took some pictures of my M40 German helmet the other day. I've had this beauty for some years but I am wondering, is it a golden Heer or Kriegsmarine?

    This is an example of a Heer decal with some heavily yellowed lacquer

    I think this shows some of the problems we face in determining KM vs. Heer.

    Perfect example!

    With fragments of decals, only a high quality macro lens or better yet, as noted, a USB microscope can give you the answer. And even then, not all the time.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    Thats true. Thats why the champain decals transfer to fake.
