The helmet is in great condition with its original liner. Ex. Mike Miner, ex. Jack Melton collection.


WW 2. Horrific Artillery Struck German M-40 KIA Combat Helmet.

Excavated condition. This poor soldier’s head would have totally disintegrated. As you can see, large shrapnel fragments penetrated it from the side and top and blew out the other side. A profound example of what war really is. Provenance uncertain.


WW 3. Catastrophic KIA Artillery Struck German M-40 Combat Helmet.

Completely shattered by multiple shell fragments. Some blowing through the other side of the helmet. Provenance uncertain. Ex. Mike Miner/Jack W. Melton collection.
