    I would agree. I have nothing to gain! It is so beautiful as it is! LOL. Someone put it kindly to me " its not worth the metal it was made from ".

    I am currently accepting offers for this prize piece! LOL. You will have to pay postage, because it will probably be more than the cost of the helmet!

    With the first helmet posted, it is a Latvian or Czech reissue I believe, which was
    recently made-up with an 'exposed' decal to fool the unsuspecting into thinking
    there is an original SS helmet underneath, and will not be harmed further
    by removing more paint, IMO.

    It's entirely possible that one day, you may come across something special
    and destroy any history and value of the helmet by trying to 'get to the
    bottom' of the mystery, by sanding ( Cringe ! ) it all away. There are
    other methods to remove post-war paint - or better still, as you say
    - leave them as-is.

    I suppose I simply prefer other ways of dealing with post-war
    painted helmets.


    ( Apologies if I appear to be on a rant......... ! )
