WH (Heer) M40 Ex-Wire Camouflaged Combat Helmet

Description

 WH (Heer) M40 Camouflaged Combat Helmet (Stahlhelm M40). The steel construction M40 helmet retains most of its rough textured, (field-applied) three-tone tan/brown/green camouflage over-paint showing clear traces of chicken-wire being attached once. A  decal looks faintly visible beneath the paint. The paint shows normal wear and scratches, see photos. All three liner retaining rivets are intact. The interior of the helmet is a M31 leather liner with all eight (slightly damaged) fingers, the liner is a size '55' marked. The leather is still supple. The shell is marked with maker and size 'SE62' which indicates production by the company 'Sächsische Emaillier und Stanzwerke A.G.' from Lauter. The reverse interior neck guard apron has a stamped serial number '746'. The helmet is complete with its original regrettably broken chinstrap, the chinstrap is not visible maker marked. Very nice and hard to find original camouflaged helmet!
