    Default M40 Chin Strap...Looking for

    Hey All,

    I am looking to buy a leather chin strap for a M40 Luftwaffe Helmet I am looking to buy. Does anyone have one they want to sell or know where there is a good source to find a period one? Don't want a post war one of course or repro.

    Thanks in advance for the help! Rossi

    Long time no talk Rossi. I know the Collectors guild has a few for sale. Don't know if they are the right ones for your lid. One is a minty RZM the other is maker marked but can't tell the date or maker.

    You may know this if not it may help (straight out of Ken N's book). In 1940 Luft helmets switched over to the standard black straps. Prior they were brown. Also, Luft helmets often used Wilhelm Ellers, Bielefeld and O. Reichel, Bielefeld made straps (once again out of Ken N's book.)
