    Default Original M40 Helmet?

    What do you think about this helmet? I know the liner and straps are not original, the painting looks original, but I have a doubt about the decals. Thanks for help.

    Close ups, especially of the decals would help a lot.

    Agreed. Also, how would you post something like this?

    Ok, sorry. A friend sent me the photos asking for help. I'll ask him for more photos with the decals.

    From these pics I say a put together fake. I doubt the paint, the wire is a recent addition and 99.9% sure those are fake decals. However there is a DD M40 SS in the GHW database that is a rear marked Quist. I'll be interested to see the closer pics of the decals.

    I see no evidence of the wire's presence on the shell for an extended period of time. A double decal m40 SS with wire sounds too good to be true.

    My thought is this entire helmet is a fabrication. Are those holes punched into the liner at the front? From what I see I would pass. Strap also looks a repro. Closer pics would confirm one way or another but at this point I say no..

    I'll do best. I'll have the helmet in my hands and try to take better photos. For me only the painting looks original, but how I'm not an expert, I'll be glad to see the opinions.

    You would make sure it is well wrapped in bubble-wrap and place it in a box.
    Thanks ,Glen.
