A double decal M40 combat police helmet that is in an untouched and uncleaned state. The exterior field gray combat paint appears to be approximately 90% intact. The police eagle decal is very nearly 100% intact, while the party shield decal is about 80% intact. The exterior of the helmet has some spots but, as noted, it is uncleaned and looks just as it does when it was brought home by an American veteran. The interior liner is present though lacking the drawstring. The full chin strap is present, with the leather being stiff from age. The liner, chin strap, and the interior dome of the helmet are all dirty and dusty. The interior of the helmet is stamped "Q64", indicating a size 64 helmet manufactured by the Quist firm.
