I wrote about some barn finds I bought a while ago, and yesterday I picked them up. I had bought them, but hadn't seen them in hand until yesterday.
For those who haven't read the post; this lot contains a m35 lid in semi-relic condition, a belt with buckle and a K98 amo pouch.
The helmet is named, and has a decal under the paint. I won't open it up, but my best guess is it is a sd WH lid. The belt and buckle and the pouch are all from the same soldier, and his name is (what I can make out) Miller. Its a NS64. The only thing I did to it is oil it lightly as the rust seems to be active (red). The buckle is Dr Franke with lip, and the belt is 105cm. Strange the belt only has one pouch, but I have seen that before. Everything was untouched and uncleaned untill I oiled the lid, but its a non aggresive oil, and can be removed.
The lid looks like it had a band around it at one point, and seems to have been repainted in the war.
Thanks for any input!
