    I have come across this m40 helmet for $300 us, the seller claims that it retains 99% of its original textured paint, the leather liner is not original but the liner band is apparently untouched. Just after opinions on authenticity and whether this is a good deal. Thanks

    Hi Diekresse,

    The shell looks like a good mid-late war rear marked Quist, But the price is a little steep for just a shell. You can get a complete ND Quist with a liner and chinstrap for around $450-500.

    A bit pricey for a bitzer like this. Is that traces of a name on the inside of the rear skirt?

    I think the helmet is good looking and the price is, if you want it, okay, while slightly overpriced.
    A complete liner costs arround 150 and a chinstrap arround 75, if we consider that only the leather part is missing it misses arround 200 Euros of parts for a complete helmt, and as stated before that is an acceptable price for an complete helmet.
    I would, if you buy it, leave the helmet as it is at it is still a nice exibition piece.

    I will only echo what others have said.. For $300 you're getting a shell,, for a little more you could invest in a complete helmet..

    The choice is yours though...

    The only thing that is missing is the leather, so it is not just a shell as I see others write. It is has the original linerband and unopened rivets. That is a big deal. It is a nice helmet with a great patina.
    I found something similar last year , with that I mean missing the leather.

    Try to get it down to 250.
