Original Item: One-of-a-kind. This example of a captured German M40 helmet was painted white by USGIs who then had their names listed on the helmet as members of the “1100 ENGINEERS”. This Model 1940 German helmet is still in nice condition with no dents or damage to the shell.
The reverse, interior, neck guard apron is serial number stamped, 159 and the interior, left side, apron has a stamped manufacturer’s code and size, Q64 indicating that indicating manufacture by Quist in Esslingen, Germany in size 64. Size 64 is a nice large size that can accommodate liners from 56cm to 58cm or US 7 to 7 1/4. Size 64 shells are harder to find and are therefore more valuable to a collector. The helmet still has its correct M31 liner with 4 of its 8 fingers intact. It has a nice chestnut brown aged color but is dry. The chinstrap is present and complete and all three liner retaining pins are intact.
The helmet has 53 names and is nicely marked on the front:
DATTNER NESS MULLIGAN
CAPT. J. E. NElSON
The names are as follows:
