    The helmet is nice and have the white camo under the fieldgrey repaint. But the wire is post war attached, due of different condition. After the light cleaning in oxalic acid you'll get an excellent example!

    Hi Thanks for your reply. The wire is made of copper, its covered with a greenish-gray color. I believe that copper does not rust ?? I got a pic of the helmet after it was ground dug..according to the digger he found it buried in sand no mud??

    I believe the wire is also original, is made of copper , the sides of the helmets where the wire is attached are worn out. I also have this pic from the digger that sold to me see below:
