Single Decal M40 Heer Quist Helmet
A good example of a Heer Single Decal M40 Combat Helmet with stamp number of 781 and I believe to be a Q on what appears to be a size 64 shell. Field repainted in a grey green colour, the shell is without damage with 70% of the over paint remaining. The decal has toned over the years but shows clear evidence of the original silver colouring. Inside the liner is intact with loss of stitching to the rear seam and slight wear in that area. The leather itself having darkened as a result of perspiration but remaining intact and supple with the original drawstring in place but untied. The liner band fits well and has avoided the annoying habit of being bent to find a date. The chinstrap is present but missing perhaps a quarter of the length of the long side.
