    Hi Tampalm,

    Yes I found German WW2 helmets and hemlets shells (in different conndition), but one big problem is how to remove paint puted after original paint. After WW2 German Army grout E and F retreated from Greece and their main way to cross Yugoslavia and final destination was germany. In Yugoslavia in 1944 Red Army and partisans cut their ways out so thay stay in circlament. After war ended all captured German equipment were issued to new formed Yugoslavian Army, helmets were repainted and red star were puted on front, original decals and peinting still exist on most helmets.After Yugoslavia started own production (rifle M48, helmet M56) most of those equipment and headger were storaged for Teritorial Defence forces (Auxilary forces on Yugoslavian Army). Some warehouses still keep very large quantity of those equipment. Storages were sealed for many decades ago and mostly abbandoned but locations are secret. When wars in Croatia and Bosnia begun some storages were unsealed and many antiq weapons apperad (in begining of war you can see that most Croatian soldiers were armed with Thompsom M1 rifles and old Sovier Sshpagin sub-machineguns). Also many US equpment are still in those storages, history is very interesting, when Tito refused some Stalin demand in 1948 US and western powers sent large quantity of arms and vehicles to Yugoslavia most of those arms were WW2 dated. When Yugoslavian National Army was formed and Stalin dyed relationships betvin USSR and Yugoslavia become better and Soviet arms embargo lifted new weapons were imported and domestic production become widespread most of US aid finished in Teritorial Defence facilities as reserve. Sorry for long message but I think that was nessesery for undersending whole situation.

    Hi Draggans,
    Some very nice finds, there. With regards to removal of paint, this can be achieved using acetone or other products. If you search through the restoration and refurbishing section of the forum ( Restoration & Refurbishing) you will see quite a few examples of indiviudals who have had success with removing newer paint to reveal the original paint beneath.

    There are also quite a few people on here who would also buy the lids as is as they like a project, especially if there is the glimmer of hope to find some decals lying beneath the newer paint. I know I personally would be interested.

    In any case, good luck with your hunt and I look forward to seeing more of your finds!

    Removing post war paint is hard, and I have never attempted it, Acetone I have heard is good, but not ever tried!!!

    Hi everyone,

I separeted big lot to 3 smaller and start job with firs, on attached pictures you can see my progress. I just cleaned dust from half of first lot and I'm very sattisfied with condition. i also make full refressh thretman on one P.08 holster and results are greter than I thought. Leather need to be cleaned well and after cleaning vaseline based creme make that holster shine again. But lot of job stiil need to be make, I sleand about 1/8 of whole lot and I didn't touch pouch box. One iteresting holster for me is German Polizei holster shown on attached photos.

    Some members asked me would I sell some of items, I think that I will but please help me to form some realistic prices, dealers prices are high for normal people standards and i wish to all of us be satisfied. I arranged selling of one large quantity with one of dealers beacouse I need to solve my financial problems but I be glad to supply my felow collectors colegs.

    All the best
    Dragan
