WW2 German M40 Helmet/Norwegian DD


A very nice and now difficult to find M40 Quist helmet with original liner used by the Norwegian defense force after the war. These were helmets that were left behind in Norway after the surrender and were stripped of paint, often relined and decaled with the Norwegian decals. The original liners and straps were painted dark brown in order to kill any lice etc. that might have still been living in them. Many helmets had replacement liner pins but this one retains all the original German ones. One interesting feature on this helmet is the shell is metal stamped with the original owner's name 'Siekmann'. The size is 56/57.
