    I meant that it is raised but fairly wide and a smallish hole ( although that could just be the corrosion ) .... just to me it looks unusual and I am trying to guess the maker ( it is the 3rd & 4th photos in the second post )

    No concerns, just an observation

    As promised here are a few pictures in the light. I'll put each helmet under a separate post so it doesn't get confusing.

    First is what i think is a M35? with a nice amount of liner present. The tag shows where it was found. Ignore the price, that's not what i paid for it

    Number 3: What i think is Luftwaffe due to the colour inside? Nice to have its liner band and reminiscence of the owners name, shame i cant make it out.

    And last but not least...Looks like someone ripped the liner out of it rather than it just rotting.

    Interesting place to have a few relics from !!

    Fab! Thanks for the information. The young chap was telling me how he started metal detecting over there when he was 4 with his dad. He certainly has a few more relics which i will be purchasing over the next few weeks.
