This is your classic mid-war Q66 (Quist) M40 helmet for the would be
re-eanctor or collector who wants to represent how a German helmet actually appeared during the war. Made with a mint ORIGINAL M40 Q66 German shell with a reproduction liner and chinstrap featuring a chicken wire camo cage.
This is my last mint M40 Q66 shell in stock and so I don't mind stripping down the current outside paint and starting over again on it to whatever configuration you would like done.
Please call, text or email me if interested in purchasing.

GERMAN HELMET FACTORY PRODUCTION CODES
(Every original German helmet produced from 1935 to 45 had two factory stampings punched into the side and rear or both in the rear. The alpha numeric number refers to the factory location and the inside metric circumference in centimeters. The rear lot number refers to the production run and was used as a quality control measure. The font styles used at each factory were slightly different but highly consistent throughout the war and so fakes or reproductions will either not have these numbers at all or they will use the wrong font style or letter spacing and so are easily identified as post war made.)
