Here is your quintessential every day fighting man's helmet from late in the war. This is your classic M40 Quist helmet in a nice size large Q66 rear lot number T3440. The original liner is pigskin which was common when this helmet first left the factory in early 1944. The liner is fully in tact and in near mint condition never having been removed or otherwise tampered with. The outside paint is a dark slate gray with some texture in the finish. A common color near the end of the war when they started using more slate gray colors instead of dark gray green. As is typical with late war Quist helmets there is some paint dripping on the inside skirt which is always nice to see. Helmet still has a whopping 98%+ of it's original paint still in tact.

(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.)
