    I look forward to seeing it cleaned up. What process will you be using?

    I think it looks fine as it is, no need to mess with that baby.

    I have one in pretty much identical condition - possibly from the same
    source - Estonia via ebay.

    I would not do anything to it - any and all markings are long gone
    due to so much rust. I can't see any stamping/marking on
    my helmet either.

    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............

    Try to wash it with the oxalyc acid, maybe some part of colour could appear again!
