    Default M40 SD Wehrmacht shell...real/fake??

    Hi guys,

    I was offered a M40 SD Wehrmacht shell...

    It is a unmarked unstamped helmet in reasonable condition.
    Seller gives full warranty on this beeing a genuine helmet

    Im pretty sure that the paint is non original..
    But im in doubt about the shell,
    i know there are unmarked original shells, and this one looks pretty ok in my humble opinion...

    The seller insured me its a original, and has offered a full refund when it is not original.
    The price is also fair...75,- euro's

    So what do you guys think?

    Hi. It is not impossible for a wartime helmet not to have any markings on it, but it is unusual. It appears what you have there is a ground dug helmet that has been crudely painted. at 75 Euros, i would save my money. It will be nothing more than it already is

    Hi mate , i agree with John , its a ground dug shell ,i would say original, no markings probaly eaten away by rust , pins look like they were added , it looks to me it may have been painted with some sort of rust converter , if you like the ground dug stuff go for it , but if you look around you could find one with the remains of a decal or some battle damage for same money or less , there are plenty out there , 75 euro for me is a bit steep for a plian shell that has been messed with , just my thoughts mate cheers Raymond

    The helmet is a piece of crap lad. I wouldn't give you a euro for a dozen just like it.
    Save your money and invest in a helmet that is in good shape. The helmet shown is worth scrap steel no more.

    Thanks Steve, for your hummble opinion :P

    But i have to say i did obtain this helmet,
    Traded it for a piece of crap HJ knife (very very very bad copy)
    So all in all it cost me about 3 or 4 euro's...
    i know...its a pretty bad helmet...but come on for less than 5 euro's???
