    Default Hj winter camo M40 helmet?????

    Hi guys,
    just found on the web, they want to sell it for a lot of money.
    I have never seen this decal and I think is just a fantasy item, but maybe I'm wrong...
    Also the eagle stamp on the liner is very strange.
    What do you think?

    It is a repainted post war reissue Norwegian helmet. Note the colour of the internal paint and the red coloured liner.

    The decals are fake and incorrect too. Not such thing as a HJ helmet with tricolour national colours. The whole thing is a fantasy.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yes,
    I thought the same, the red liner is a clue..
    but about the decal, is it existed or not?
    if it is, I would expect one of those on a parade helmet rather than a combact helmet?

    being an m40 shell i would think the chances of double decal of any kind would be low but they do excist but as ade said wrong combination of decals anyway
