Article about: It's strange that the bird decal is rust red and the tri color is more uniformity white. More pics in better lighting would be helpful in coming to a determination.

    I will try to take some more pics, but I don´t think it is overpainted, inside the helmet there is virtually no paint left !, It does however have some kind of finish, maybe oil, I am not sure :-)
    After a closer look, I think it is oiled, but definetely not overpainted !! there is no signs of paint in any of the rustpittings, not utside nor inside !

    I bought it in germany from a private seller.
    I will try to take some more pics shortly.
    It has some smaller arears with grey paint and also remains of a darker grey sandlike paint.
    The arear close to the shield is one of these spots.

    Try in daylight conditions if possible.

    I just had a conversation with the guy I bought the helmet from !
    He had the helmet from an old lady, who found it in the stable after the war.
    It has been used for corn for the chickens ever since !
    It was found in Müncheberg, between Berlin and Seelow.

    Hi ,
    I have TRIED to take a couple more photos, but I don´t know if they are any better ! It is very hard to avoid the "glare" even in daylight conditions. But as I said before there are no paint in the stamps and rust craters, and it looks like that maybe some kind of steel brush has been used to remove rust !

    Maybe the wire brush has caused the scratchs on the national decal as to me, it looks like the decal has been aged with sandpaper.
