    Default SS M 35 EF named and researched steel helmet

    I've bought that helmet this weekend from a one guy who found this helmet near Soolkula/Auver- Sirgala strongholds in Estonia. The helmet was probably lost by the owner as you can see the name is A. Weiss, leather part inscribed A W
    The helmet was found in the peat, due of that you can see how the helmet is preserved.
    I've clean just a leather part of liner, it's still attached to the alu ring, but unfortunately all the steel springs which is connect the inner ring to the main ring was absolutely eaten by rust. The left decal is scrabbed and just have one place where is the bit of red dot is visible. Right side is doublelayered decals, and the top decal was overpainted in fieldgrey, but after more than 60 years under the ground ( or use?)approx 70 % of a overlayed decal is missed, under that you can easily recognize a not a bad runes decal...
    How does the liner looks before cleaning: http://warrelics.eu/forum/restoratio...-cleaning.html
    After research by the name I found next data about the owner


    Nachname: Weiss
    Vorname: Albert Eduard Willi
    Dienstgrad: Unterscharführer
    Geburtsdatum: 21.02.1905
    Geburtsort: Hassitz
    Todes-/Vermisstendatum: 06.03.1944
    Todes-/Vermisstenort: Bei Narwa

    Wow. Nice preserved. I think when that German Marked T-34 was found a few years back under the water, the mud at the bottom did the same thing. Not much oxygen got to it, so not much oxidation
