WW2 German Heer KIA M40 SD Helmet



Significant staining on the front forehead area that has dried out and crumbled one of the fingers, looks like he took head wound. Liner shows use but is overall sound for a helmet in this condition with the obvious exception. Faint dome stamp, almost complete chinstrap which is broken. ET66, lot number 126. Nice decal, the faint green lines are actually wax crayon, probably played with by kids. Should be an easy clean up job. Pins are tight and the liner has never been removed. Marked on the liner “Koch M 15639”
