    Hello guys, I need help identifying this possibly finnish M40 Wartsila helmet.
    Is it a real winter war era helmet or just a swedish M37 someone painted some decals on?

    Never owned one of these helmets, but I wouldn't really trust this one. The inside red label looks less like a transfer label and more like someone printed out the label and glued it in there.

    Swedish 69M shell and L60

    Real Finnish used helmets should have Swedish made 72L41 or Finnish wärtsilä 69W or different size 72W stamped on the rim

    Real Transfer decal is often chipped.
    And it isnt present anymore in all Wärtsilä made helmets, often missing.
