    Default Lot with helmets M40, M42 etc.

    Hi again. I've also been able to buy this from a private person. (Have asked for closer pictures on the German helmets).

    I know it's hard to judge from just these pics and I will post the new ones when he send me them but as far as I can tell is maybe the liner of the M40 repro and chinstrap maybe got a chance. He wants 90

    And the M42 doesn't that one got a Russian M39 liner? Maybe it originally belonged to the other Russian helmet on the picture? For this one 60

    Well, let me hear what you think.

    The M40 looks like a repro liner and repainted, not much value there. The M42 looks like it might have the original paint but better pics would be nice. The liner does look Soviet to me. The others are Swiss, Soviet/Czech/etc, and post war British Mk4 (1950's ish)

    Thanks and well, it maybe isn't the most outstanding original helmets but i'm thinking of buyng them (when seen better pictures). And maybe try to strip off the M40 paint and learn how to do it. I will certainly try to get a grouping price.

    And by the way isn't the M39 Russian helmets/liners quite uncommon?

    Thanks Sweguy

    Hmm, the guy said that he had bought these from a Russian guy and this was what he said about the helmets:

    The green M40 has a new liner but original strap.

    On the M42 there is a decal under the paint (his son repainted it) but if you remove the paintl carefully there is a decal underneath. He would send me a picture of a similar decal he said. "He sent me a picture of a SS-helmet. Should I laugh? And obviously from these pictures the M42 is a bad repainted relic.
