    Default My new M40 sd luft, opinions wanted

    I am new to collecting helmets so I am never sure about decals. What do you all think about the decal and also what bent this helmet? Was it hit with a spent round or is this not war related? The paint is not harmed in the area of impact. Any help you can give is appreciated.
    Thanks
    Sam

    Is the luftwaffe decal original? I know that it will probably be impossible to find out what dented it. I have heard of Quist helmets before is this a good thing?

    Yes, it is a good thing. I can't be positive due the photo but that looks good as well.

    Default Some better pictures of the eagle/swastika

    Here are some better pictures of the eagle and swastika. Could you all give me an estimate of the value of the helmet as it is? I bought it hoping it was a m35 but I already have a m40 so I do not really need this one. I would consider a trade for a 35 or 42 or I also collect late 17th and early 18th century militaria if you have anything let me know.
