I doubt it. The Germans made a postwar model based on the M40 that I think is called a M55. Looks like the M40 and would work in a display but not a wartime helmet.

The chinstrap and rivet on the one they show is all wrong. There is also another hole slightly behind and below the air vent that was not there originally on the M40's.
