    Thanks, is the rounded bottom of the decal not an issue?

    I can't see any problems with this, but wait for someone else with better knowledge than me! I'm no expert, but I have a few of these.

    Looks OK but tell him to try to get pics without the swastika blocked out.

    Thanks, unfortunately it's on a local auction that does not allow for the display of the swastika.

    gday tom, the decal looks ok from these pics. The liner pins look very loose and the earlier reinforced aluminium liner although not unheard of in m40's, could point to a replaced liner system post war.........i dont think its even got a rear liner pin
    sorry if im telling you stuff you already know as you just asked for decal info
    regards paul

    Thanks Paul. It seems I was mistaken about the rounded bottom decal being a problem. :-)
    As a matter of interest, I took some cellphone pics (very bad ones) of some of my friends headgear collection.
