    Default M42 relic waffen ss with net cover remains!!

    Hallo Guys, I'm a German and US M1 helmets collector; is my first post on this Forum.
    I will like post you my last relic; the helmet was found in Pomerania (Poland) with other two helmets /see the first and second picture).
    I cleaned the helmet only on decal side with ossalic acid and decal SS appears again.
    There are waffen SS cover remains on the helmet and liner is still there; I found inside liner two little piece of carboard, probabilly put inside helmet from soldier to defence from cold!
    I think a very interesting relic and a cool helmet at the time!!!

    Hi Mario,

    You did the digging? If yes, you do this often? What metal detector do you use?

    Hi, I don't digging this helmet.
    I use often metal detector in Italy close Rome, in some places where were be Anzio beachead during January and february 1944.
    I founded many US and English items .
    Only German items that I founded was an ID TAG of 15th Flack regiment Herman Goering.
    Those are the pictures.
    I use a simple "Garret 250"

    Very nice finds, but unfortunate the bad soil, if they will be bunker find, the condition will be perfect. Usually the helmets found with cover are bad under it, due of all time wet and rust activity is more than uncovered helmet. Anyway interesting finds!

    very interesting piece, i love the patience of your job with it. You should show the helmet to a conservation lab really.. Its amazing what can come out from finds like this.
