A couple of helmets I found at a local flee market for used carparts
Three M1 Front seam fixed bale helmets.
They are all sandblasted (sadly) but show some marks and dings giving me the impression that they are combat relics from europe. All have stress fractures as many other early M1īs. In one case theres a possible wartime repair of one of the fractures. The bale as been welded back and the crack is brasswelded for support.
The story behind the helmets are that they were found onboard an old boat wich was being cut down. And you wont believe this... There were 50 helmets onboard!

(Know that I probably should upload the pictures here. But I dont have the time for it right now and want to share them with you. But my album wont be erased so the link will work.)
