    Default M40 SD Heer - opinions please.

    Hi,

    I am thinking about buying this helmet.
    ...what do you guys think of it?

    The helmet has clearly seen some action - the crack on top.

    I particular like the condition of the liner/chinstrap and the decal.

    Do you think the crack spoils the helmet?

    Regards

    I love it! The crack adds some interesting history to it,however it got there. For me a worn and a little damaged item is so much more "real" than a minty box fresh one,although those items is also very nice

    A nice-looking and original helmet! and I agree with Inka, the crack does indeed add to the story. A very worthy addition to a collection.

    I like the look of this one, definitely seen some action and the crack adds some character to it!

    Thanks for your thoughts on this M40 SD Heer.

    Personally, I think that the crack gives the helmet character - and makes you think about what the helmet has "seen".

    The helmet is not cheap, but I like it!
    Maybe, I should buy it as a Christmas present to myself

    I am sure the decal is good but you should post a decal closeup to be 100% sure. Dealers can make mistakes.

    Yes Christmas presents to oneself are a must in this hobby...

    PS I also love the concussion crack in the dome. I have a camo SD SS M40 ET with a similar concussion crack and I love it!

    Hi, I feel that this one is a fine example of a HEER M40 that has seen a bit of action. I would guess the owners ears were "ringing" for weeks from the concussion hit. Leon.

    The dealer(Weitze) has not made a real closeup of the decal, but you should be able to zoom on the first picture.
    ...I made a zoom closeup of the decal - picture 119(can it be used?)
