1939-45 M40 STEEL COMBAT HELMET WITH SPRING OR MEDITERRANEAN PATTERN CAMOUFLAGE. Shell only with liner band (no liner) and remains of chinstrap. Great looking shell with a multicolour rough texture camouflage. Paint is predominantly tan/brown with green and a small portion of red. Retains much of the finish with wear in all the expected places such as the top of helmet and around the outer rim. Little visible rust. The three split rivets retain some of the original camo paint also. Inner rim has some rust to the dark green painted finish. Maker and size to the left hand inner flare 'ET66'. Batch number to the rear inner flare of '3816'. A name 'F.Feller' is hand written to the rear inner flare and appears to be period done. Surface rust to much of the inner dome. W/m liner band still present as is the w/m band from the liner. Most of the leather chinstrap including the w/m buckle is present, but exceptionally fragile. Regardless of the condition of the inner, this helmet shell displays very well on a mannequin head. Grade II- (P)
