WW2 German M40 'Shipboard Grey' KM Camo Helmet.
A original non decaled 'Shipboard grey' or 'bunker grey' camouflage M40 which is characteristic of Kreigsmarine (KM) Helmets. The light grey colour has been heavily brush painted over the original helmet colour and after many years of storage it has suffered from some rust bleed.
Comes complete with original band, pig skin liner and chin strap
Made by Quist but size and batch number have been painted over, is believed to be a Q64.
Found recently in an Austrian attic (along with some fieldgear). The helmet remains untouched by us and so remains un-cleaned with a quite hard liner.
