Garage find! M42

Article about: I found this in the garage of a guy that scraps steel for a living. He said his grandfather brought it home in 45-46. It's been juggled around in the garage ever since.

    Nothing needs to be done to it. It is fine. Adding a chinstrap would be OK, as that would simply fasten on, but I would not mess with it by adding a new liner.

    Nice find. I would also leave it as it is.

    The feeling in your tummy when you make these finds is absolutely wonderful, almost orgasmic. Apart from the artifact itself and for having found a valuable item for nothing or almost nothing, it is also the knowledge that you have saved an item from destruction (in the worst case) and that it will go to a better home, well taken care of and where it will be admired for what it is.
