HOLD (tr) Rare, Waffen-SS M40 Double Decal Combat Helmet Q66
This is an outstanding example of a well service used, rare SS helmet type. Double decals were used only a short time in early- mid 1940, then manufacturers went to the single decal per specifications. Like this example, most of the M40 helmets produced as doubles later had their party Shield removed; some did not. This helmet shows medium to heavy where overall but retains 90% or more of the Quist pattern runic Shield. The paint is also a high percentage intact. The liner has been relined at some point with the correct type of liner without disturbing the liner band or the pins. The pins are flush and unbent. Overall a very collectible piece, and one of the rarer types of SS helmet produced. COA with these caveats accompanies.
