    Default WWII German Kriegsmarine Helmet?

    Hello, I have recently acquired this helmet and would like to find out more about it before I sell. I've done some research but want to find out for sure. First is it a Kriegsmarine? Also M35 or M40? And most of all what's it worth? I appreciate any input. Thanks, KanManClick image for larger version.

    Looks to be an ET64 M40. Might be a Kriegsmarine judging by the yellow "adler" Eagle. But sometimes the Eagle yellows by age and it is just the more common Heer helmet.

    Regards,

    Thank you for the information. How can I tell for sure if it is a Kriegsmarine or not?

    I do not truly know, unless I actually hold it in my hand and look.

    Wait a bit, I am sure better observers will give you the answer, especially those with better eye sight.

    Best wishes,

    -Jaeger

    The lacquer used to seat the decal will turn yellow sometimes and has a dull look to it as yours does.
    The Navy decals have more of a metalic iridescence to them.
    Your helmet is a nice army lid friend.

    Nice helmet , for me it's a KM decal.
    Worth around 1100 - 1250 USD in that condition is my estimation

    I appreciate both your inputs, under a jeweler's loop the yellow almost looks like gold flakes. I wonder if this is the metallic iridescence you mentioned.
