The helmet is stamped Q64 and the lot number is 478 i know there is only supposed to be one decal on a M-40, But doing some research The Quist company did start their M-40’s with 2 decals on their helmet, the Tri-color shows through the paint the other decal is covered, they paint is worn in spots, but you can see the original paint underneath the tan paint, all the paint inside of the helmet it the original green army color the liner has never been removed and is in there nice and tight the chin strap was shortened so there is no date stamped, The liner leather is still pliable but 3 of them are damaged.
