    Welcome to the best forum around!! Looks like you picked yourself up a nice luftwaffe M40 shell. If you can get shot of the rest of the nasty paint your $20.00 is well worth $200.00! Nice find "ol" bean, keep up the good work!! PS,nice dome stamp and chinstrap.

    ARGH what a shame about the paint. Be careful when you strip more off. It looks to be an NS manufactured shell am I right?

    Welcome by the way

    I'm sure that used to be a beautiful M42 Luftwaffe helmet. You can probably very carefully strip that paint, and maybe save the helmet. But read up on how to do that before throwing acid and chemicals on the helmet. Still not a bad find for $20. Welcome to the forum.

    cgp1066 is right.

    that's a good pick up there. i would not proceed if you've not a lot of experience doing this without very explicit instructions from someone who does.

    i am short on the name right now, but you helmet guys would know... there is a member who is well known and quite good at this sort of work. you might at least speak to him.

    again... good find!
