    Its an M40 but the photos seem to indicate its fake.
    The decal looks a repo and the paint and liner look redone they dont have the patina you would like to see on an original.
    Leave this and find a better one.

    The surface of the helmet appear pitted, Dan do you reckon the shell was ground dug?

    Sorry, was at home earlier & just got to work now.
    Being pitted could indicate dug but if the pitting is even and not on the inside I would say that its just air corrosion over the years. But that just means the shell is original, I doubt anything else is.
    The liner particularly looks chemically aged reproduction ( poorly fitting, odd colour, no size stamp )
