    Nah, I dont think it is blood. I had a few lids that I dugg up that were 100 procent KIA and it din't look like this. Dried up blood on the inside of a helmet doesn't look like this after 70 years. I have had helmets with pieces of skull and hair stuck inside and none of them looked like this. To me this looks like oil or grease.

    All the lint is only stuck to the "blood" areas and no where's else, blood wouldn't be sticky after 70 years.

    I think possibly the soldier did it himself your helmet is still very nice the shell finish is first rate and refreshing to see thank you for showing.

    I think it could be, the rot to the liner , the cut chin strap is another sign

    Blood ages dries cracks and shrinks leather ask OJ Simpson, this liner has just deteriorated over the decades much like me when I look in a mirror.
