    From the condition of the surviving paint, I would guess that this was unused and then dumped ( little observed damage to the overall finish ) and therefore not surprising to see a very crisp decal ..... then again, the lengths some people go to to pull off a deception never ceases to astound me!!

    So I would value more opinions ( and better photos will only help your cause )

    Hey, the helmets where stuck on each other in piles so thats probly the reason why the decal is still quiet visable.

    A friend of mine said it is a genuine M40 and probaly a Quist decal!
    So lets see what people say here
