    Default Interesting relic?

    Hello, just got this ground relic M35 today. Most original paint is gone but it has some spots left. And it has different colours, dark grey with what looks like red(ish) too.
    When I removed some rust I also found a bit of white underneith, but it´s not much I must admit I don´t want to hack on it any more.
    Could the red be colour changes through time or some kind of camoflague?
    It also has a hole by the airvent, the rest of the helmet i solid though. Perhaps battle damage as the helmet is a bit flattened on this side too.
    I like ground relics, must admit that a better helmet would be great to own (I´ve seen a lot of your beautiful helmets) but they´re also a lot more expensive. Got this one for less than $50.

    Very nice helmet, the redish color is probably the remains of some camo IMO.

    The reddish traces is a traces of the fire, and the condition says that too.
    Approx 70% of the helmets found in the Eastern front on the surface or near it - was a fire damaged

    Thanks for your comments!, it feels good to be a part of this forum.

    Dimas, you´re right, it´s from the eastern front. Were the helmets fire damaged when farmers burnt their farmlands after the war
