    Im glad you have decided to leave well enough alone, I have seen relic helmets so called cleaned and they have been left with more holes than they could count. That is a nice relic from a great battlefield, as said before enjoy it for what it is. And as for battle damage what ever hit him on the noggin came from a big blast.

    i paid 30 bucks for it and im having it shipped from latvia. i know it doesnt hold much value but i think value is in the eye of the beholder. it tells an interesting story from the bloodiest battle in history.. thats good enough for me
    This is the attitude a true collector should have. "Value" isn't always determined by rarity or money, some people never seem to be able to grasp that concept. You have, so you are definitely on the right track.

    Personally, I love rusted battlefield relic helmets much more than a mint one.

    Just wanted to 'bump' this thread. I found this exact same helmet on ebay, being sold by someone in Latvia with several similar helmets. Just found that confusing. So, BigRedOne, if youre still active on the forum, did you ever get your helmet? Does anyone have any experience with this ebay seller?

    I guess I'm just wondering why the seller has this helmet for sale, when it seems a forum member purchased it over a year ago.
