Waffen-SS steel helmet -Norway

Post by EndreW » 07 Nov 2022 18:42

I work in a museum in southern Norway, and we have this helmet for consideration. It is a Quist M40 helmet with a SS decal. The helmet is original WW2, and is still owned by the family of the man who obtained it in 1945. However, there is no garantee that not someone has put a fake SS dekal on an original WH helmet after the war. The familiy claims the decal has alway been on the helmet. The man who obtained the helmet in 1945 passed away 20 years ago. I would be greatful for your opinions. Is this an original SS decal/helmet or a postwar fake decal?

Hello EndreW :

It's an original SS decal, like the one worn by other Norwegian SS volunteer helmets.
