    Default M40 DD problem identifying maker mark

    I have seen this helmet for sale, but am having difficulty reading the maker stamp. I was hoping for an ET but it doesn't look like any wartime manufacturer stamp. The adler looks like a Heer darkened with (I assume) varnish, covering the whole lid, rather than a Kriegsmarine one. The national shield I think looks good, BUT does the liner look rather too Norskie? The rivets look loose too. I have requested better pics of the decals and liner. Any help appreciated, as always - the last M40 I posted went AWOL!

    Hi Al, looks like a modern paint job and decals to me, and as you say, a Norwegian dyed liner. I must admit I have not seen that makers stamp either, so I would pass on it. Leon.

    The shell is an E.F. M40 but it has a reinforced aluminum banded liner with Norwegian dyed leather. The exterior paint is clearly post War so the decals are bad. My thoughts are that you should avoid this one. Jim G.

    Cheap attempt , not even the hidden decal photos can hide it.

    My eye's are playing tricks on me, on my PC it looks like the stamp is EM!! Only when I really stare does the "F" appear! I need to drink more beer and sort my eye sight out. Leon.

    You traditionally have made wise buying decisions when you have a few beers....LoL

    BTW...it looked like an EM to me too! LOL
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    ....perhaps the guy doing the stamping that day had had several beers the night before!
