    Its been in there for well over 90 years and most likely put there by his dad after WWI hope you like it steve

    Lovely. I wouldn't touch it or clean it. Look like under the dirt and dust is a camo?? What is the burnt orange color paint from. Looks more recent.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Great helmet - "Salty" would be an understatement !

    I'd be tempted to give it a few good wipes with hot
    water on a cloth, but you'd risk removing the
    age/patina that has accumulated.........
    Regards,


    Steve.
