A great M40 Wehrmacht combat helmet.
The left-hand side carries the army decal, which is about 75% intact. All three liner rivets are in place and untouched and the mid war zinc liner is original to the helmet. The brown leather is in good condition with one small split to the surface area, but it is still strong and pliable. The helmet is complete with a mid war chinstrap. Manufactured by Vereinigte Deutsche Nikelwerke, Schwerte, with stamping NS64 for size 64and batch number DN74, denoting manufacture in early 1940.
The wear to the helmet shows the usual scuffs and scrapes expected from service usage, with most of its dark green mid-wartime paint remaining.
