    Default M40 Combat Polizei

    Finally added a combat police helmet to the collection! Been after one for a while now and just could not pull the trigger for a variety of reasons....Here's a Q64 that is in the condition I like.....not too salty and not mint.
    Very happy to have it added to the helmet collection!
    Took some pics to share!
    Cheers!

    Nice helmet Rob. If you don't mind my asking, why are there paint runs on the front?

    Hi Tom! I believe the helmet was re-issued and the paint job was done perhaps quickly or applied too thickly on top. Here's a closeup of the paint.
    Glad you like the lid! Cheers!

    Great lid Rob, I love the paint drips - adds character to the piece. These are usually on the interior of the apron, but it appears that the painters at Quist had a tendency to over apply paint on the exterior as well on occasion. Jim G.

    Rob nice helmet, I agree with Jim's assessment of the paint as well. Nice character piece!
