    I received this helmet when I was younger. The crosses (front, small on back) and fleur de lis) were not added by me but appears to be added by someone and im guessing not the original wearer unless he was a chaplain. The lot # stamp is clear inside but still looking for the factory/size #. The HEER symbol is faint on the side. I believe it to be a M1940. Thanks

    It looks to me as if the helmet has been repainted a few times...the gold is definately not original. The decal, i really don't know. The black paint i would say is post war.

    Hi, welcome to the forum.

    From these pictures it's hard to say a lot about this helmet. I agree with Rommel1942, it's definately been painted post-war. The decal had potential to be 100% original but it's hard to tell from the pictures. If you can post a good close-up in natural light then we could tell for sure.
