    Mine, like yours, and all these M42's are in similar condition - some with partial liners,
    remaining original paint, and a lot of rust - I suppose they are found in
    old bunkers, or some other damp forgotten places............

    Those a probably the best places to find these.
    The american ebay has the best prices, an m42 on costs twice as much.

    Try to wash it with the oxalyc acid, maybe some part of colour could appear again!
    The shell is too weak for that, the other day i was cleaning with a brush and some soft tissue and a lump of metal just fell right off.

    Yes, oxalic won't do much for that helmet and the water will probably bring in ugly, fresh orange rust. i would leave it and display it as it is, I think it looks fine!
