This is a great combat worn mid-war SD Luftwaffe helmet with great overall patina and a very strong EF style LW decal. The helmet was obviously worn during the war but not abused as the inside leather liner is still both very completed and strong. The outside paint is your typical EF rough textured finish and being an M40 is the least common among all of the factory makers and so a great pick up for someone wanting to expand their Luftwaffe collection. The LW decal is textbook EF and has a nice dark yellow tone due specifically to the chemical nature of the lacquer the Emailer Stanwerkes factory in Fulda was using at the time and is seen on most M40 and M42 EF LW helmets. This helmet is priced to sell and has a few minor rust spots on the outside but is still a very strong specimen indeed!!!
