|This helmet is an M-40 that had the decal carefully removed. In 1943 decals were no longer applied to new helmets and existing helmets with decals were ordered to have the decal removed for better camouflage. Of course not every one followed the order, but this guy did. The liner is in great shape and has not been taken out of the helmet Chinstrap is in good condition but was cut short. Also, when being made the machine got off track and was cutting with the holes not at the end of the chinstrap. But it is original to this helmet and was used that way by it's wartime owner. the Numbers on the shell are are ET64 and 973.|
