    Hi everyone,

    I’m more of a Dagger man, but I’m starting to get into Helmets
    from the different battles around Europe.
    I found this one which is apparently from Stalingrad,
    could you good people of the forum shed some light on this one for me?
    It’s very much appreciated.

    Looks like a great relic M40 with a misalligned decal.
    I hope you get confirmation from members

    Is a misaligned decal common Kateri? Much to worry about?

    Maybe just my eyes,but it looks like an easy mistake in the factory,applied just to the right.
    I'm sure the members who really know will comment when they can.

    Often seen but worth a view if you want some context .

    As said, a nice relic with what would have been a large name painted on the rear of the skirt....pity its no longer legible.

    The "Stalingrad" aspect could always be a story, hard to prove...

    Its the real deal, looks like its had an oxalic bath to come up like that. Solid relic.

    G’day mate, as stated a nice original relic M40 helmet! Nothing too unusual about a misaligned decal.Note the darker green inside the dome, protected somewhat by the liner. A good coat of Renaissance Wax should slow down the rust nicely.
