    Hi, nothing wrong with this salty old "war dog"M42 HEER helmet. Looks like a typical barn find conditioned piece to me, I would just give it a light wipe down with a dry cloth and put it on the shelf! Well done. Leon.

    That's a great score, an honest unmessed-with M42 with good paint, original liner and chinstrap! I have no doubt that this one will clean up beautifully with little effort...Well done!
    (I've got a barn-find Luftwaffe M42 on the way, looks a bit rougher than yours, but I hope to bring it back to life as well...)

    cheers, Glenn

    Thanks Glenn, would love to see your M42 when you get it in hand. Hope the chicken on your's is a little more intact than mine

    So I should clean the surface with a damp cloth, and that's it?

    Aaron, Congratulation on the m42 find. Not much can be added to all the other comment, yes it is a salty helmet but it is a honest helmet. Welcome to this great hobby of helmet collecting but remember you can tell your wife all day long "these helmet are an investment and I can sell them if I need too." IT WILL NOT WORK!!!! She will not believe you and you will not be able to let them go.
    Proud to have you here. Marty

    Maybe it's just my eyes, but I see two different paint colors?

    Anyone else? Maybe just the dirt...

    When you get the helmet take outside pictures. A camo would be nice.

    Perr my comment earlier, I see the same thing....only in hand will tell. Could be nothing, post war touch up or...a camo....
    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
