    I'm not an expert but it looks like a good honest M40 or M42 shell to me, how much is the seller asking for it?

    It's a shell

    worthless IMO

    Theres nothing bad with it as such, its genuine but everyone has different tastes and opinions. To John this is just a worthless piece of metal, but to me its a helmet shell waiting to be refurbished or just kept as it is as a display piece I wouldnt pay 40 € for it though

    oh ok though it was too bad that is was obvious. but i really dont know how to spot fakes in helmets. And here in portugal is very difficult to buy anything.
    most of you have luck. i dont know were do you guys buy things but my reallity for a helmet in that state 40 € is not expansive due to lack of it.

    Thanks again for your opinion about old M40 or M42 right

    Its not an m42, from what i can see its an m40, m42 helmets do not have a rolled edge around the base, they have a flared edge which makes them look sharper around the edge, are there any markings inside?

    -if it is the ony opportunity and you like it , go for it but don t pay to much for it
    the shell looks quite original to me
    you can use it as a study opject for atleast the stamps though
