Sorry but I dont like this one at all. The biggest problem is its a DD M40. The Tri colour should not be there and is a round bottom fake. Judging by the wear in the right spots and the colour of the adler compared to the tri colour I believe its a fake as well. Although there is no hit for the lot number in the database it puts it in a range of an SD Heer. The texture seem off (looking at my own SD Luftwaffe M40 here) and I dont like the rust around the liner pins so I would say the paint is post war added. Hard to tell from the small pic but the insides would be added as well if the rest is bad, plus its looks to be aged.
Not something I would move on sorry!
Don't like it either. Moreover, low batch number indicates a later EF M40. Tricolor is faked for sure and I have bad feelings about the eagle aswell.
A closer or larger photo of the Luftwaffe decal would help, but from the details I can see, I think it is a repro decal. The look of the claw, specifically the one holding the swastika, is my primary suspicion. As stated above, I would higly doubt this M40 was originally double decaled. The liner is hard to see from such a little pic, but from what I can see I don't like the look of that one either. IMO, I would pass on it.
Already passed. Thanks again guys.
Scary how good they make the fakes these days, I'll try to stay away from Helmets for a while :S
