    I think I wasn't that well applied ... a little bit twisted
    Not unusual for Luftwaffe decals to be slightly askew. Many of them have a tilt, and some even have broken wings or swastika arms that were broken during application and applied anyway.

    Poorly applied Adlers appear a lot on Q shells. I am pretty sure this one was applied the morning after the factory Christmas party. Jim G.

    Hi Eric, it "was" a good Quist M40 Luftwaffe helmet! Over here in the UK it's value would be around £550 mark, so I guess that's maybe $700 ish? Leon.

    Leon, I think $750 would be about right. NH

    All original. It is interesting that the liner band looks like it is a reinforced aluminum band, but the chinstrap bales are rounded, like what be on a steel band. This helmet was probably assembled in 1940, during the transition from aluminum banded to steel banded liners. Jim G.
    I like these helmets with bits pre and post 1940 regs, I have a m35 with a steel liner band but it has one square aluminium bale and one steel bale
