These helmets were originally blue painted. In my opinion the liner on your example, was burned.
Would be a shame, having to die while wearing such a silly looking helmet...(But, I don't think it looks like blood either...much more likely burnt)

Thank you both for the replies! I agree.... I definitely would not want to die in one of these! I prefer my my US ACH much better!
Luftschutz helmets the majority of them anyway are in the color you show on yours occaionally you will find a very dark blue some are black like police but are not encountered as much as yours. You have a fine origninal LS with exception of the liner I can't make the stamped maker in the steel like RL 38/29 for example that will be your maker of the helmet the decal sticker is put in them per NSDAP reg to prevent price gouging by other distributors so they all had a fixed price. In other words a price sticker. I agree with other liner was somehow burned probably. timothy
Maybe he had to answer the call of nature after a particularly hot curry? ............... that'll burn through anything
