Hello and good morning.
This is my first helmet and i am really excited about it .
The shell is not so rusty as it appears in the photos, might be the camera flash that enhance it...
It has the war time liner (nub. 55) with the crown, the cross and the ''ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΟΣ ΣΤΡΑΤΟΣ'' - GREEK ARMY signs.
I think that the shell paint is the original one and not a repaint, maybe my fellow country men (or anyone else of course )will help me in this. How do we call the overall appearance of my helmet? Good, salty or there is a certain terminology about the helmets?
I am thinking of cleaning it (has some dirt inside the shell) and put some leather fat/oil in order to soften the leather parts. Do you think i should do it or leave it as it is?
Thanks in advance.
