    I happen to like the Russian lids just fine, but you are right. Collectors want German helmets over all others.

    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."

    This is very true, but not being able to date them puts people off, they have an understandable doubt it could be a late 50s shell.

    Yeah mate, that's very true if there's any paint left you can tell them apart.

    Yeah, they are not expensive and I could buy one - I just prefer finding it myself

    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.
