New to forum with new to me SD M40

Article about: Greetings, I have been lurking here for a while, time to get involved. Excuse the cell phone photos... First up is a new to me SD M40 (Q62 lot#DK337), liner band is intact, leather long gone

    Just for your reference, here is mine. It is DN137.

    Take a look at the decal on mine. Compared to other Heer decal variants, the Quist 'Bigfoot' has larger feet and a flatter head. Fakes of these are made but yours appears to be a good one. These decals are only found on Quist shells.

    By the way, my liner band is dated 1942 so I imagine yours would be too.

    By the way Josh, my 'Q62' is on the side.

    Also, I would like to welcome you to the forum. We have a lot of great people here and this place will save you a lot of headache.

    A nice one, my compliments and welcome!

    These pics just go to highlight the KM / Toned Heer debate, some pics are very obviously Heer (which it is), but some in this group with different lighting would perhaps be questioned as KM.

    A nice chunky Quist Heer, with big Q nipples which always please me.

    Thanks to all for the comments. I will try to add better photos later. As well as an M35 from the same seller, but that one is just a shell.

    Very nice helmet you have there.. May I ask if Q62 is stamped to the side of the helmet, or is it stamped at the rear, above the lot number?

    Josh

    It is stamped on the side.
