A good late war German M40 helmet.
The helmet has most of it’s dark green painted finish remaining, with scuffs and scratches from combat usage. There is no decal. All three liner rivets are in place and untouched and the leather liner is stained but in good condition.
The helmet was manufactured by F.W. Quist, G.m.b.H. Esslingen and is size 65/57. The internal skirt is stamped lightly Q64 with batch number DN472 – mid 1944 production. The skirt also carried the name Auchter.
A great original combat used helmet.
