    In my opinion, it looks bad.

    Shell is a real M40, liner is real, strap is probably real, paint and decals are junk. No good for a collector, though the parts have a bit of cash value.

    Besides the bad decals, the rough texture paint finish is something I would never expect to see on a legitimate double decal helmet.

    Double decal helmets would have a much finer paint finish. A re-issued helmet with textured paint would have only the branch of service showing. Not sure about that liner and strap - looking post war to me. NH

    The texture of this helmet is all wrong IMO. It was applied too thick, and the paint is not the right color either.

    Hi, you have your answer, a very messed with helmet. No collectors value whatsoever, but if you want a re-enactors piece it will do. Leon.
