    Hi ! would like to know what you think of it ? at least if it's a original shell ,probably not the real paint i am putting a description of it

    Original M40 German helmet from WW2 with the stamped in markings of ET64 and at the rear of the inside the numbers 1117. The helmet comes with a leather liner and chinstrap which I cannot see any particular markings on except for a number 57 stamped into the leather.

    The color of the paint is a sandy beige which makes me think it may have typically been used in a more arid region such Africa, Greece or the Balkans.


    Thank for your patience and for your help with me trying to start my little own collection

    Hi Frenchy, this one is bad. As you correctly guess the paint is modern. The liner and chinstrap are also not original. Not one which you would want in your collection.

    Cheers, Ade.
