    Default My first helmet cleaned up -Dugged in Russia

    Well I got this helmet my friend when she went to Russia. and it was FUC*((#&$ horrible. So what the hell, what can I loose. so I decided to do a acid wash for my first time and see what happends. I think it came out ok. Found a number there, I think it's a number, is it a number 19?

    I just wanted to share, laugh all you want I know it looks like crap but im happy. Sorry for crappy photos it was still shiny from the wax.

    It is not unusual to see the inside skirt of a helmet with a large number or name painted in white. This was a way that an individual soldier could quickly ID his helmet if it was in a pile. NH

    Nice relic!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    A nice solid relic. The chinstrap has survived remarkably well. It should display very well.

    thanks guys it means a lot. I know the pictures suck but it looks better now with it dried up. I have 3 more to go :!( . At least I know where it came from, what battlefield and it has history.
