SD KM M40... This time for real (I hope)

Article about: Based on the picture as is I'd say KM as well but I would heed Francis's opinion.

    The weathering on it could be from exposure to salt air on the coast, and it looks like a concussion crack on the rear of the apron. Maybe the soldier was in a coastal artillery unit that saw some action during a landing? Just speculation on my part. It does look fine to me. Jim G.

    another interesting possiblility as well. from now on, i think soldiers should be required to write their stories in their helmets so that future collectors will know exactly when a helmet was issued, what combat it saw, etc. : )

    thanks for all of your advice guys, ill post a shelf picture as soon as i receive it. $450, not bad at all i think : )

    Looking forward to the new pictures, and yes, $450 for a SD KM is quite good! Congrat's, and enjoy it. Jim G.

    Good deal for sure and the concussion crack does add a nice element of charachter to this one despite the rough condition. Always good to get other opinions, nice to have a consensus before you buy something.

    helmet ordered!

    3 army, 1 KM, and now i begin my quest for a single decal LW helmet...

    its funny how the goals work. here they are in order:

    1. get a german helmet of any kind or condition (shell at least)
    2. get a really nice helmet with original liner, paint, decal, etc.
    3. get one heer, one LW, and one KM
    4. find some way to get money for an ss
    5. get the ss : )

    I had similar goals, and then I thought I would be done after getting that 1 representative SS....however the addiction took hold and here I am later with a room full of these lightning bolt decaled helmets each with a different story.....only death can depart me from this addiction, er, passion!!!

    But seriously you have an excellent strategy. Start with what makes sense, and keep upgrading from there, learning the entire time. In no time you will have that SS helmet and then it will be a police, then by maker, then my shell type, then by decal type, it never ends.............
