This is an original WW-2 German helmet. It is an M-40 beaded Luftschutz helmet. The ring or bead around the helmet indicates a different standard of strength. Some believe it was added to helmets when a batch failed QC as a front line helmet. Other believe they were made this way from the beginning. Regardless the bead indicates a Luftshutz or other such use. Liners in these are also inferior to front line combat helmets.
This helmet has a nice decal and paint is in nice condition. Chinstrap is mostly missing. Marked Q64 and and DN198. Guaranteed 100% original.
