    Default M40 EF62 ND reissue ?

    hello all....one more post today and I have to admit, I am a bit nervous....as stated earlier I took the plunge and bought my first legit helmet which may or may not end up on my next mannequin since I have quite a bit of field gear....

    I am more of a medal and paper guy but hey.... who doesn't want a helmet... I aimed low for the first one, nothing glamourous, no visible decal but to looked good to me and the price was right...hoping to avoid any pitfalls on my first purchase, i bought from a reputable dealer.....

    in hand, I have to say I am quite happy...unfortunately there is no chin strap but the interior is in good condition and named

    so here are some pics in indirect and direct light (it finally stopped raining)....hopefully i have done everything correctly and the photos are adequate....

    I would like to hear the thoughts from the helmet gurus on condition, general look....and I have seen from Schwerpunkts site that 98% of reissues were m35's....so, is it a reissue from factory or from field depot or something else ?

    thanks in advance for your input and critique....

    as described by seller....M40 reissue with brush applied field grey overpaint, heer eagle peeking thru, steel liner, rivets tight....EF62 lot 1356

    the inside is kind of an OD green and does not have the over paint.....

    aside from the reissue question, just wondering the approximate time frame of use for this helmet....thanks in advance to all !

    I like it and nice to see an M40 reissue. Time frame is impossible to determine , anytime after it left the factory. A depot or field reissue in my opinion.

    A very nice example David! Agree with Frank re: being reissued in the field. And looks like it may have had a white wash applied at some point.

    The seller described it well.

    From the photos, it looks like it is possible it had a white wash? Or maybe just the lighting and my eyes are seeing something that isn't there.

    The name is the liner is really nice. Maybe a better photo of it?

    Edit: Didn't see that Andy mentioned the WW too.

    thanks to all for the positive comments....have to say I am pleased and ready for the next one !... there is something to be said about having it "in hand"...knowing the feel of it I may be better prepared if happen to stumble upon one in my travels....

    here's a pic of the signature.... seller described as "Heinz Streicher 2te Komp".....unfortunately, no unit noted....I'm good with the Heinz part, last name is in question in my mind

    interesting about the comments about the white also...there is a small section near the front where there is a whitish hue and it it feels chalky as well....hard to capture in a picture

    which leads me to another question....do you do anything to a helmet like this in regards to preservation, cleaning etc ?....my guess is, leave it be but what is acceptable ?

    thanks !

    Good that you ask , German helmets are easy. They do not need care for the simple reason that oils and leather treatments don't work and many helmets and liners have already been ruined in the past , the best thing is to keep it in a stable environment that's at normal house temperature.

    Looks like a solid purchase. I also noticed traces that seem to indicate former whitewash.
    Congrats on your first helmet.

    Leave is be. Don't do anything to it

    I can't read the last name but it doesn't look like Stretcher to me. Still, a very cool example
