Excellent example of a single decal Luftwaffe helmet Pablo. It's not unusual to see some paint wear in the heads of the liner pins but this one looks perfect :thumbsup: Decal in great shape as well. Liner with some wear but complete with liner string and looks nice and supple. Does the chinstrap have a makers mark or LBA stamped half way along it? From my observation I would say it is a M-40 though not a M-35. I could be mistaken but I think I've seen this helmet before. About 3 years ago? C to C, Bob's site? Photo's look familiar.
Top helmet Pablo :thumbsup:

Regards Mark.

Mark, well spotted and yes it came from Bob I site.
I started typing another lid 1st hence the m-35 but change my mind and decided to put this one up 1st and you are correct this is a m-40, no markings on the chin strap I can see.
