Very nice honest relics mate!.....
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
thanks gunny ,its funny but these soviet relics dont command as much money as german relics and dont get the credit they deserve yet i feel they are of equal importance and also a very pleasing on the eye design
Looks to be in okay condition.
Id would have liked a relic USSR helmet. I found these heaped together in one hole. I was pretty happy, when during digging, they turned up. Sadly, they were all too far gone. Helmets were sorted after the battle and these were discarded and thrown in a heap, I guess.
Another helmet decorating a tree.
This one is for sale on a well known 'TREASURE' site. The ad says; "Helmet in fine condition. Tiny pinprick holes here and there. Hardly visible damage, that just adds to the character of this rare helmet. A fine helmet in mint condition, that would be the center piece of any helmet collection."
i agree gunny, i placed these two 40's against my post ww2 1948 dated 40 and the colour differance is very apparent ,i prefer the earlier shade of green
Very nice helmets. Thanks for sharing. I wpould like to have one of these one day.
scout they are more reasonable on the wallet than you think ,nice work by the way ,i wish i could dig for my own relics instead of digging into my pockets thanks for sharing your finds ,i like them even if not complete shells
There is a certain satisfaction in looking at a lid or other relic and know you found it yourself.
My first ever finds were these two Shturmovik shells in perfect condition and found next to each other not too deep. Im quite happy with those.
Ive found several lids, but all were too far gone.
