    Looks like an honest M40 single decal heer (Army) helmet, good paint, decal, and liner band. You mentioned that the decal was gold, but it was originally silver, and has acquired a goldish tint due to the period application of a coat of lacquer over the decal or simple the passage of time. Nothing wrong with the piece that I can see, simply a nice shell overall. Thanks for posting it. Jim G.

    Thanks for posting Homer. Very, Very nice. If the name is legit written in red the K.H. Sch, must have been a bunch of Schmidt's in his unit.

    Im guessing the name is orginal to the helmet because its fading and cracking, my uncle would know more about the helmet but he has since passed on so I dont really know
