    Default Relic Helmet, M42?

    Hi, just had this relic delivered and very happy with it. I'm wondering what you guys think of the damage, do you think its shrapnel, gun shot or just damage from being in the ground?

    Am i right in thinking it a M42? I'm probably wrong but worth a punt

    Thanks

    Looks like pick axe damage. It is an M42.

    Wahey! Im learning!

    I agree, the only way you'll ever know what the damage is, is if you were there when it was damaged in the first place!

    Thanks

    I was going towards the shrapnel damage in my honest opinion but that's probably me just being hopeful. Either way im happy

    Very square holes for shrapnel. I'd say axe too. And M42.

    I will say shrapnel. I have no knowledge of diggers using pick axes. Not here anyway. Too heavy to carry around. Let's just say you got a good big signal on your detector, would it be clever to just thump away with a pick axe? It's not from a pick axe. I have seen lots of this type of battle damage

    Regards, Lars

    Do you know where it was found Vicky?

    I would say pick axe too. It doesn't have to be the person who dug it up who put the damage into it. It's had 71 years to accrue this damage and being as it was underground there is a very good chance anyone or anything in that time could have damaged it.

    It may have been dug up from a building site or even from someone's garden 30 years ago and sat in a shed for 41. There are many possibilities.
