    Default Luftwaffe Helmet

    Hello all,

    My gf is in town for a few days and she is must more of a photographer than I am, so I had her help me take picture of my collection. Here is a luftwaffe helmet that I have had for a couple months now. It was my first helmet purchase that came direct from a vet's son. He said it had been sitting in his closet for the past 35 years and preferred having the cash than the helmet. It is missing the liner and does have missing paint in areas, but it does have the rough, not smooth, paint job, but it also appears to have some sort of white wash or paint on it. Not sure if that is something that was purposely or accidentally applied. Any opinions would be welcome.

    Nice SD Luftwaffe M40. The decal flaking is pretty common on textured paint like this. Does this one happen to be a CKL?

    To be honest I am not sure.. The condition on the inside of the helmet has made it hard to make out any markings there may be.
