used post war by Norwegian army.
Is the helmet German war time issue and what is the model.
Hello. Yes, it is a German M40 made by Quist. The Norwegians dyed the liners this brown color after the war. Hope that helps. Nice helmet with a duel German / Norwegian history. Another bonus is the larger size (66cm).
Hi, well done on stripping this German M40 back to it's post war Norwegian configuration. These are getting rarer as many of them have been ruined with an over paint to make them look like a WW2 issue helmet again. Leon.

Thanks for the update guys. I thought it was big when it fitted my swede.
