    Default M40 Quist helmet

    Can anyone help me out on a helmet I recently received? Its a M40 Quist that came from a vet. The question I have is about the makers mark. All the helmets i own have the makers identification on the side by the d-ring. This one has it under the back flap right about the production number. Just wanting some feedback on this. Thanks - J.C.

    Nothing wrong there.....The firm of Quist moved their maker's marks to the rear of the helmet sometime during 1942 or 1943. These marks remained in that location for the duration of the war. Any chance at getting some pics?
    Cheers!

    Quist shifted the makers mark to the rear rim above the lot number sometime in late 42 or early 43, as far as I know. Nothing to be concerned about

    If it just had Q64 and no lot number it would be post war.

    Thanks. I had never seen a helmet with both stamps in the rear.
