Default M40 SD Police Helmet ?

Has anybody ever seen a single decal police helmet ? This has the Police decal and has never had anything on the other side.

Never seen that. Looks more like someone just slapped that decal on the helmet. It’s not a usual one for M42. What maker and lot number is the helmet?

Looks like M42 Hkp/SE with a ET style decal. Unusual but not impossible to be a SD 42.

M42 police helmets still had both decals normally. Did someone add the police decal to a no decal M42 ? Maybe they put it on when they added the chin strap.
