Article about: I bought this helmet at the Gunday show in Louisville a couple of years ago, and it now makes up 50% of my collection ... So, I have always thought it to be a Heer helmet (I know it is one c

    Nice Apple Green paint on the shell .
    I thought when the slant of decal was mentioned that the ships were rocking when kreigsmarine were applying them !

    Ok here are some natural light pictures... It would be great if someone stating their opinion tell me why they draw that conclusion as well. Not that I dont believe you, but I am here to learn.

    judging from number 5 (Picture) it looks like a WW1, but the last two pictures here I can see it's a m40 yes

    Where on earth did you come up with a WW1 helmet type shell, its an obvious M40, and ive got to agree it looks like a toned heer, these toned decals do cause a lot of upset, i always understood that KM , under a loupe, revealed flakes of gold, deep rich in colour and the toned heers were caused by an oxidation of the outer lacquer, can this be substantiated, or perhaps a pinned thread, showing side by side Heer and KM decals would help to sort this problem out as its constantly surfacing

    Well, under a loop it is very gold looking. Its hard to capture in a picture.

    A toned decal will look toned under a loupe as well ;-)
    I think the pictures capture it well as a Heer.

    Here's a toned Heer my collection (different maker)
