    Default Should I refurbish it

    Do you guys think I should restore/refurbish this helmet. Now I'm only talking about doing it to remove the rust and the crap on the inside. Id like to leave the decal and the remaining paint that was untouched left alone. Pretty sure this helmet was dug in Russia.

    Any thoughts, whether I should remove the rust and if so how or just leave it alone.

    Leave it as is imo. Seal it in a plexi box used for football helmets and it won't deteriorate anymore.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Yes its a M40 and I agree with what was mentioned about leaving it alone. The damage to the shell from an obvious bullet tells the story and the corrosion that formed on it when it fell should not be changed in anyway.
