    The short answer is No. Even if there is obvious blood staining or pieces of hair inside this is not indicative that the helmet came from a grave. Could have been removed from a casualty and tossed aside or one of countless other scenarios. And even if there is no evidence of trauma there is always the possibility that the helmet came from a grave site, the soldier could have been killed by an injury other than to the head and rolled into a hole still wearing it.

    thank you for the responses. I just don't want to get something that was from a grave if you know what I mean. I agree, its hard to tell unless it comes with a skull in it, lol.

    Really no way to tell with a ground dug lid. If a ground dug lid is what you are after it may be worth contacting this member http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/member.php?u=23280 Datrus is a Dane living in Russia, check out his youtube channel!..https://www.youtube.com/user/Moscowprepper
