This is a nice original WW2 M40 Luftwaffe single decal helmet. The Luftwaffe decal is about 95% intact. The helmet is stamped Q64 manufactured by Quist and is size 64. Production stamp is DN 231 ? difficult to make out .
the helmet surface shows 99% of its original factory paint , at some stage during its service life it had a sawdust camo added , which remains on the top of the helmet , helmet has very light pitting mostly around the skirt
The liner rivets are tight & have not been messed with & shows the same factory paint & wear as the rest of the helmet. liner size is 57 and the liner leather is in very nice condition & is still soft & supple – no tears to any of the tabs, chinstrap is 100% original to the helmet, with the chinstrap also being maker marked and dated 1943. and is also soft & supple, though one side has torn at the buckle
Overall a very nice unmissed with helmet to add to your collection.
