This is an original German army WWII helmet shell. The model is the M40
that issued first in 1940 and has the rolled/folded in edge and the stamped vents on the side. The shell size is a 64 with an
"ET" maker code. This shell will fit the Sz 56 and 57 liner. The reason
the helmet has green paint is because someone tried to refurbished it. That also explains the decal remains on the left side. The helmet
you see on the pictures is the one that you will actually get. THERE ARE
NO DENTS NOR PITS NOR SCRATCHES IN THE METAL ON THIS HELMET. It is a
quality piece that you will surely be happy with. It is $25.00 to ship
this item to anywhere in North America, Australia, NZ and most of Asia.
Within Europe the postage is $21.00.
