German M40 steel combat helmet, identifiable by its rolled rim and embossed vent holes. The inner left-hand skirt is heat-stamped "SE64", indicating manufacture by Sächsische Emaillier und Stanzwerke of Lauter, while the rear skirt is likewise heat-stamped "9806". The exterior is finished "battleship grey" with a single gold Kriegsmarine-style decal on the left-hand side. As SE is only known to have produced single-decal M35 helmets for the Kriegsmarine, it is assumed that this finish and decal are spurious. The interior is fitted with a light tan eight-fingered leather liner, showing notable flaking and with the rivets securing it to the shell rather loose, indicating likely replacement. The name"Wisch" is also painted on the rear interior skirt, likely also added spuriously. As a result, the helmet is offered as-is.
