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 had tape over the swastika leaving some damage to the paint and decal. Chinstrap is mostly missing. 100% original and otherwise unaltered.
